BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Baltimore City Public Schools is providing free meals to children as part of the Summer Food Service Program, which started June 16.

Meals are available to anyone 18 or under or to those over 18 with a mental or physical disability who participates during the school year in a public or private non-profit school program.

The initiative is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture and runs Monday through Thursday from June 16, 2022 – August 18, with some sites operating on Fridays.
