3 free meals at Huntsville schools over summer



HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Schools in Huntsville plan to provide three meals each weekday over the summer as part of the district's new summer meal program.

School district child nutrition program director Joey Vaughn tells al.com (http://bit.ly/10iitaY ) Huntsville City Schools is the only district in the state to offer three free meals through the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Summer Food Service Program. The free meals are available to all kids who are 18 or younger.

The program is set to run June 3 through July 26. Ten schools will offer breakfast and lunch, and two will offer dinner.

The district is working out the details of transportation for students who aren't enrolled in summer school and for children not enrolled in Huntsville schools.

Parents can pay to eat with their children.
