Indiana is making strides when it comes to ensuring all children are able to access nutritious meals during the summer months. Hundreds of thousands of lower-income Indiana children eat free or reduced-priced lunch and breakfast during the school day. But what happens when the bell rings for summer vacation? A new report by the Food Research and Action Center found more than 75-thousand children received a summer meal in Indiana in July last year. Emily Weikert Bryant of Feeding Indiana’s Hungry says that's a 23-percent increase from the prior year. She says some common barriers can keep children from participating, including parents who are unaware of the program, a lack of transportation, and an inadequate number of sites in an area to meet the need. Families can locate a summer meal site by calling 2-1-1, or online at 'fns.usda.gov/summerfoodrocks.
