Rochester public schools offering free breakfast and lunch


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- With summer vacation in full swing, school meals have ended leaving some wondering how kids will get nutritious meals, primarily in the case of low income families.

The Rochester School District uses a USDA program that ensures children are able to get healthy meals during the summer months.

Free breakfast and lunch are available at Riverside, Golden Hill, Ben Franklin and Elton Hills.

"It's an opportunity to look at the wellness initiatives of children during the summertime and to provide some type of nourishment," said Sherri Knutson, student nutrition services coordinator.

Any child in the community before his or her 19th birthday can take part in this program.
