COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Kids and teens who get free or reduced lunch during the school year will also be able to get free or reduced-cost meals this summer.

This summer, the USDA plans to serve millions of free meals to children at approved summer food service program sites. Any child 18 and younger can eat free at designated summer meals sites across the country. There’s no enrollment and no cost.
