Summer break is in full swing for students, but it's also a time when some might not have access to meals.

At Omaha Public Schools, Nutrition Services Director Tammy Yamron said she's seen food insecurity up close.

"Usually we feed about 10,000 lunches a day and it's not just students," she told 3 News Now.

While the federal initiative Summer Food Service Program has been around for awhile, state and local education officials are currently highlighting it to say sites can feed more students this summer.

Children ages 18 and younger, from any school district, can receive any of the following three or a combination of them for free: snacks, breakfast and lunch.
