School is out.
And while that may mean sun filled days of playing and enjoying the summer break, for many Georgia kids and their families it also means facing hardships when it comes to meals.
WABE’s Rose Scott reports on the importance of summer feeding programs from Atlanta to rural parts of the state.
During the school year many students get at least two meals a day through the free and reduced lunch program.
In Atlanta, that’s 78 percent of the student population.
And for DeKalb County it’s 71 percent.
