Free summer breakfast and lunched served to kids in Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Summer Nutrition Service Program is a federally funded food assistance program that provides meals at no charge to children less than 19 years of age.

All meals are available without regard to race, color, national origin, gender, age,  disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, or marital or family status.

The USDA estimates the cost of raising a child born in 2010 is about  $227,000.  Many families rely on  free or reduced lunches during the school year to feed their kids.

"There are a lot of kids that qualify for free meals for reasons that are outside their control. their mom or their dad doesn't have a job.  Having meals in the summer means everything to a kid who might not get anything to eat all." says Sam Shick, the Nutrition Services Director for the Kennewick School District.


Here is local summer schedule for the program.
