Free lunch program starts; offers low-income kids food during summer break

DENVER — A free lunch program offering food to low income children during the summer is starting at various locations on Tuesday. Jewish Family Service Lunchbox Express yellow school buses will make multiple delivery routes, covering various cities around the Denver metro area throughout the summer months.

The program targets residential areas with a high percentage of children who typically receive free or reduced-fee lunches at school during the school year. 

Children age 18 and under are eligible for the service. No proof of income or identification is needed. The service does not require proof of where the children live or attend school either.
