FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - School meals are sometimes the only food children in our community get, and with the school year ending, a lot of them won't have to worry about what to eat now that the free summer meals program is starting up.

"It's part of the federal program that feeds students throughout the year. This is an extension of that through the summer, so there are about 35 locations that we are going to be at this summer," Public Information Officer Krista Stockman said.

Those locations include parks, the zoo, libraries, and specific summer programs like camps.

"It is open to any child 18 or younger. It's also open to special needs adults," she added.

No qualifications or paperwork necessary.

It starts June 5th and will go through most of July.

Breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be served. However, breakfast will only be at some locations.

Here's a link to check out the menus.
