“During the school year, more than 21 million children receive free and reduced-price meals,” says the U.S. Department of Education. Unfortunately, the end of the school year also means the end of a nutritious breakfast and lunch for some of these children.
Research has shown that when children don’t get enough food, it can impact their cognitive abilities, academic performance, and health. So this summer, the U.S. Department of Education is helping to address the issue. They are providing free summer meals in many schools around the country for kids under the age of 18.
