Summer Meals for Needy Kids

Listen Now

Lots of kids in this state qualify for a free school lunch because they come from low-income families. But what happens in the summer, when school's out? Some of them may still need more food than they can get at home. That’s where the summer meal program comes in. There are sites around the state where kids can go for a free lunch. But there really aren’t enough of them, and that’s something Kathy Underhill has been working to change. She’s with Hunger Free Colorado. One of the newest meal sites is in Wiggins, on the plains northeast of Denver. Jodi Walker helped make it happen there. They speak with Ryan Warner.
