Colorado Springs School District 11's extensive summer feeding program will continue this year.

Anyone ages 1 to 18 is invited to eat free at one of many locations — both in neighborhoods and schools. All locations will serve lunch, but only some will serve breakfast.

For a list of locations and hours, check out their press release here: News_Release-FNS-Summer_Program-5-13-13-1.pdf

Hey, its better than an empty stomach.

Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch? This summer, the meal's free to kids all season long in Harrison School District 2.

Such programs are vital in poorer areas, where children often rely on free school breakfasts and lunches for their nutrition. Expert organizations like Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado have long called summer the hungriest time of the year, because kids can no longer rely on school meal programs.

Read on for more information on Harrison's program:

Any child under the age of 18 currently living in Harrison School District 2 will have access to free meals twice a day this summer.

The Harrison School District Nutrition Services announces the sponsorship of the Summer Food
Service Program. Free meals will be made available to children 18 years of age and younger.
