School Department Providing Free Lunch for Students Throughout Summer

The Westbrook School Department is offering kids 18 and younger free lunches
this summer, trying to make sure students who would otherwise go without food
are fed even when they're not in school. This is the second year of the free
summer lunch program, and already officials say they're on track to serve nearly
fifty percent more kids this year than last. The lunches are offered at Canal
School, and this year, for the first time, at the Brown Street Center, a
neighborhood spot that organizers say has brought the kids together, not only
for lunch, but also to participate in activities to keep them moving and
learning in the summer months.
