Free Lunch Program Kicks Off Today

Those 18 and under can get free meals in Charleston this week as part of a federal program. Those under 18 and in lower-income areas continue to receive free, nutritious meals during the summer at schools, churches, pools, parks, housing complexes and summer camps. There is a kickoff event planned for today at 11:00 a.m. Monday at the Boys and Girls Club in Charleston, and the free meals will be passed out during the week for the next several weeks.
