Schools offering summer meal programs for kids

School around the Metro North area will be offering free meals for kids and reduced cost meals for older family members this summer

Five Adams 12 Five Star District schools will offer breakfast and lunch beginning on weekdays June 3 through July 12.

Westminster Public Schools will offer breakfast and lunches on weekdays beginning June 5 and continuing until Aug. 11 at eight locations, including community recreation centers.

The programs targets food insecurity among students and a part of a national effort. About 22.1 million students nationally, children and teens, get free or reduced meals through the schools. One out of every five kids rely on school meal programs for regular nutrition during the school year but have nowhere else to turn during the summer months.

Parents can find the locations of sites across Colorado online, at www.kidsfoodfinder.org.
