Where to find free and reduced meals for children this summer

Columbus Dispatch

More than 787,000 Ohio school children benefit from free and reduced price meals during the school year, but less than 10 percent of them take advantage of similar summer nutrition programs, says Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio.

Brown held a conference call with reporters today to push for more participation by families and children in the summer nutrition programs.
