Kids eat for free at summer food program
Summer Food Kickoff provides free lunches with no income requirement to kids 18 and younger
During the school year, income requirements decide if students get free lunch at school. During the summer, all the kids eat free.
The Kingman Unified School District launches its summer food program at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Grandview (downtown) Pool, 324 Gold St.
Dubbed Summer Food Kickoff, it's free and provides a spot to have fun and learn more about the program, which provides lunch - with no income requirements - to anyone 18 and younger.
Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local equal opportunity providers such as KUSD to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer.
It is open to all Kingman children, and adults may purchase a meal for $3 as well.
Starting Monday and ending July 27, lunches will be served at the following:
Boys and Girls Club, served between 11 a.m. and noon, 301 N. First St.
