During the summer months, the Summer Food Service Program, administered by the Kentucky Department of Education, will provide free meals from June through August to children 18 and under from low-income families. The department partners with school districts and community organizations across the state to provide nutritious meals, recreational recreation and educational activities while school is out of session.
