For many kids, summer brings a lot of excitement.

For others, however, It is a much different story.

Many low-income families struggle to put food on the table.

Many families who benefit from the free and reduced lunch program during the school year don't often have a meal come summer.

On Wednesday morning, Millard public school superintendent doctor Jim Sutfin,  along with other local leaders announced the free summer meals program for children in Nebraska.

Last summer, More than 850,000 meals were served to children and teens across Nebraska.

This year, 200 locations across the state will offer free meals.
