Kids Eat Here Offers Free Summer Meals for Local Children

Kids Eat Here, a local initiative to promote the federal Summer Food Service Program, aims to ensure that all students have enough to eat during summer break.

Children age 18 and younger may eat at any site regardless if they live outside Lexington, out of state or out of the country.

Program partners include Fayette County Public Schools, God’s Pantry Food Bank, Employment Solutions Inc./Fresh Approach, and the city of Lexington’s Division of Parks & Recreation.

For times and locations of 78 churches, schools, parks and libraries where meals will be served click here.

The Summer Food Service Program, which helps fill the nutrition gap, provides meals to all without charge, and its service is the same regardless of the child’s race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
