Free Lunch Program Gets Underway Monday

DETROIT (WWJ) – Who says there’s no such thing as a free lunch? WWJ NewsRadio 950’s Rob Sanford reports that a massive feeding program gets underway Monday in metro Detroit.

Now that the school year is over, many kids from low income families could face a day without a proper meal. There are options as church and community groups, along with several school districts, begin a free or reduced-price lunch program Monday. It’s part of the Michigan Department of Education Summer Food Service program, and the Department of Agriculture Child Nutrition effort.

For schools to take part, they have to have 50% of their students needing free or reduced- priced meals. Some districts taking part include Detroit, West Bloomfield and L’anse Cruese.
