Two area schools provide free meals for kids this summer

CHENANGO COUNTY – Two local school districts will do their part to help keep kids from going hungry this summer by offering free, nutritious meals to any child under the age of 18.

According to the USDA website, the program is designed to pick up where the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs leave off in order to ensure that children in the local community don’t go hungry during the summer months.
