FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Community Harvest Food Bank is making sure kids won't go hungry this summer.

The food bank is participating in the Summer Food Service Program.

Kids 18 and under or people over 18 who are registered in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled can get a free meal for no charge.

Melissa Hoover with the food banks says it's important to make sure kids don't go hungry.

"A lot of the kids rely on free lunches and free breakfast at school and then when school is out they don't have anything," Hoover said. "And so that's why we try to set up a variety of sites in different counties so everything is spread out so that the kids that are used to getting free and reduced priced breakfast and lunch that they're still able to get that during the summer."

The free meal programs are being held at Renaissance Pointe YMCA and the Euell Wilson Center in Fort Wayne.

A location is also available at the Wells County YMCA in Bluffton.
