Kentucky’s largest school system gives out free summer meals
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Kentucky’s largest school system is giving out free breakfast and lunch to children during the summer.
Jefferson County Public Schools’ summer food service program gives the meals to any child 18 or younger at more than 100 schools, churches and community centers around the city.
The program also uses a retired school bus that has been converted into a mobile dining cafeteria. The bus stops at nearly three dozen sites daily.
The program served more than 295,000 meals last summer.
It runs through July and is available to the school district’s students and non-students.
