Ohio summer food service program

U.S. Department of Agriculture

Federal and state officials are trying to get more low-income children to participate in free or reduced-price meal programs this summer.

State officials are looking for more sponsors and sites in a federally funded program that offers children from low-income families free summer meals. 

Summer is a welcome break for many Ohio children who look forward to fun in the sun. But some children find themselves hungry in the summer. The breakfast and lunch programs low income children are eligible for during the school year often are not available during the summer.
