Free Summer Food Program

Lots of kids rely on school meals to get them through the week, but when the kids are out for the summer they risk going hungry.
MIDLAND, TX (Local Big 2 News) -- Lots of kids rely on school meals to get them through the week, but when the kids are out for the summer they risk going hungry. That's why several local school districts decided to offer free summer meals.

A little carton of milk or a small snack pack. These things seem simple, but mean the world to a child.
Especially one who has gone days without eating.

That's why Midland ISD, Ector County ISD, and Big Spring ISD planned a free summer food program.
One that doesn't just service the school district, but helps out the community as well.

And this is how it works. Kids between the ages of one and 18 can show up to a school participating in the program, or places like the Y-M-C-A and Boys and Girls Club for free breakfast and lunch. Kids enrolled in summer school can also enjoy some free food.

Meals are served Monday through Friday. Each school designates certain times for breakfast and lunch.

Students do not have to be enrolled in the school district to receive a free meal. They can go to schools like Milam Elementary in Odessa or Sam Houston Elementary in Midland, but there are several more on the list.

This is one way to make sure kids eat year round and not just when the school bell rings.
