INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Indianapolis Public Schools will be providing free breakfast and lunch for children in the city this summer.

The district's food service staff will serve the meals at 24 select locations around Indianapolis from June 10 through July 26. The district's "Bus Stop Cafe" will also make stops at various community sites, including the Martin Luther King Community Center, Stratford Apartment Complex and the Haughville and Irvington public library branches.

The school district's mission is to serve nutritious meals to children throughout the summer break.

"We know many students depend on our free meal service during the school year and it's important that we maintain that service even when school is not in session," said Food Service Director Dena Bond.

The meals are made available to any child age 18 and under, regardless of whether they attend IPS or another district. Adults can purchase a meal for less than $4, the district said.
