Summer break is here and for most kids, it means three months of freedom and living with out a care.  But for some kids, it means 3 months with out a school lunch and not being sure where they are going to eat.  Luckily, there are places throughout Genesee County offering free meals to kids this summer.  Check out the list.

It’s really important that kids are properly fed.  And considering the raising cost of food, the current economic state, and the fact that we’re in Flint, Michigan, there are a lot of families that are having a hard time feeding their kids. Schools are an affordable, reliable source of a good meal for many students, but when schools close, so do the cafeterias.

To help feed children in the county, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is putting on the Summer Food Service Program for Children.  It offers free meals to anyone under age 18 and adults who are enrolled in special education programs.

The places offering meals this summer in Genesee County include:
