LA Schools To Launch New Summer Lunch Program
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Los Angeles Unified School District wants to disprove the old saying that there’s no free lunch.
The district on Thursday said it will serve free lunches through summer to children and the disabled at 317 school campuses along with 105 parks and recreation centers.
The district and the city of Los Angeles are partners in the program, which is called “Food That’s In, When School Is Out.” It starts next Monday and runs through Aug. 8.
Anyone under age 18 or who’s disabled can receive a meal.
District Director of Food Services David Binkle says he expects the program to dish out 4.5 million meals.
