The state Department of Education has announced 15 school sites on the Big Island for its summer food service program.

The US Department of Agriculture funds the Seamless Summer Option program to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.

Meals will be served to children 18 and under at the sites Monday through Friday, except for the Kamehameha Day holiday on June 11 and Independence Day on July 4.

Fifty-nine schools across the state are taking part in the program.

To be eligible, schools must have 50% or more of its students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunches, although those taking part in the summer food service do not have to be enrolled in those programs.
