Even though school is out for most area students, kids can get nutritious meals through the summer food service program, which starts serving Tuesday in some locations.

Colorado Springs School District 11 is expanding its program to 34 locations this year, including mobile sites at community parks and mobile home parks.

Breakfast and lunch meals are free to kids ages 1-18 with no prior qualification needed. Adults meals are available for $2.75.

Harrison School District 2 also will serve free breakfast and lunch to children, starting June 2.

The annual program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
