Stark, L. (2017, July 26). Millions of Students Miss Out on School Meals During Summer. Retrieved July 23, 2018

Nearly every weekday during the summer break, a giant truck from the Food Bank for the Heartland in Omaha, Neb., loads up hot meals and heads out into the community. The goal is to help feed children who would normally get free and reduced-price meals during the school year. It’s one of 50,000 programs nationwide providing summer meals to children. Public school districts, parks departments, public libraries, and YMCAs are among the entities that help provide summer feeding programs.
