With school coming to an end, many students who rely on school breakfasts and lunches could face a food shortage at home. But free meals and snacks will be provided over the summer at more than 1900 locations around the state under the Summer Food Service Program.
A number of Springfield schools and social service agencies will provide food to kids and teens age 18 and younger.
Children must meet income requirements to take part. Families can find locations for the program by texting “FoodIL” to 877-877 or by going to summer feeding Illinois-dot-org.
