The end of school should be a time of excitement, but for many families it's a time of concern. Think about this! So many children receive free or reduced meals at school, and with school out, that means these children have to look elsewhere for breakfast and lunch! But if you text 877877 and submit your city/town and state or zip code, you will get a list of sites offering free meals!
