Children are at a higher risk of hunger during the summer months, and 4.2 million Texans are food insecure, including nearly 1 out of every 4 children. Starting Tuesday, July 5th, free lunch meals will be provided Monday through Friday at 8 neighborhood feeding sites throughout San Angelo thanks to the Kids Eat-FREE! Program. To participate, children may simply show up at a program site during the scheduled times - there are no applications or requirements. Family members accompanying children will also receive a meal at no-cost.

Stocked with books, colorful balloons and more, the San Angelo ISD Summer Book Patrol excitedly hit the town yesterday to deliver books to more than 25 SAISD students.
