Summer vacation is almost here, and for children who rely on meals served at school, a program that helps fill the gap is ready to roll.
Schoolchildren invited from five Sacramento-area districts on Tuesday will celebrate the kickoff of Million Meals Summer, a federally funded program to provide free meals for children in need during the summer break.
The event is set for 10 a.m. on the west steps of the Capitol, according to a news release. Students will participate in games, activities and booths to explore and get to know the program.
