Tri-State summer lunch programs

Posted:
(WGEM) -

Many Tri-State families depend on free or reduced-cost school lunches. 

When school ends for the summer those families are often left struggling. However, there are several programs across the Tri-States that are helping out.

We've listed several places serving free meals in the Tri-States below.

You can also text 'food' to 877-877 or visit NoKidHungry.org to find a service near you.
