State Needs Help With Serving Meals To Low-Income Children

LunchTennessee officials are looking for more groups to serve summer meals to make sure low-income children don’t go hungry when school is not in session. During the school year, about 650,000 Tennessee children get free or reduced-priced school lunches. But only a fraction of those youngsters participate in summer meals programs. That’s why the agency is looking for more groups to provide free meals during the summer. The groups can include schools, private nonprofit organizations, government entities and nonprofit residential camps.
