Federal program to feed Mississippi kids this summer

The Department of Agriculture has announced plans to serve two million meals to Mississippi school kids this summer. The Summer Food Service Program aims to provide two meals per day per child to help fill the summer gap, when kids no longer have access to free breakfast and lunch programs at school. The meals will be set up at schools, churches, housing projects and other locations that have enough space for the program. Mississippi is one of six states targeted for the summer program. The others are Alabama, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada and Texas.
