OGDEN -- The summer free-lunch program for children up to age 18 begins Monday in most local school districts.
At schools where 50 percent or more students were eligible for free or reduced lunches during the school year, the meals continue through most of the summer. All local school districts except Morgan have schools that qualify.
"It's so students can have something to eat when school is out," said Charlene King, child nutrition coordinator for the Weber School District. "It's open to anyone 18 or younger, and it's because of the importance of good nutrition."
