The state Department of Education has announced the locations for a program that provides free breakfasts and lunches to all children 18 years and younger.

The Summer Food Service Program will be provided at select schools Monday through Friday (except June 10, 11, 28 and July 4). A total of 59 schools are participating statewide.

The SFSP is funded by the US Department of Agriculture and established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

Eligible schools are those who have 50% or more of their regular enrolled students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches and also some type of campus summer program.

Recipients of the SFSP meals do not have to be enrolled in those programs, but should call the schools in advance so the schools will know how many meals to prepare.
