Fort Wayne Community Schools will once again be handing out free meals during the summer.

The meal program offers free meals to children 18 and younger and adults enrolled in a state-approved educational program for the mentally or physically disabled.

Summer meals include breakfast, lunch and snacks, and are provided at locations around the city. Breakfast pickups are available at FWCS sites; lunch and snack pickups are at various Allen County Public Library locations; and just lunch pickups can be found at two Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation sites.

The program was created to serve nutritious meals to kids while schools are out of session, to ensure they receive proper nutrition throughout the year.

Meals are served Monday through Friday, except June 19 and July 4.
