During the school year, Rochester City School District students get free or reduced price lunches. Aaron Lattanzio of the Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency says that program benefits a lot of families, and shouldn't end in June.
Now to the end of the summer, anyone from 2-18 years old living in the city can get a free breakfast or lunch at select locations through Rochester Summer Meals.
Lattanzio is the program's coordinator. He says the meal program offers the obvious benefit of feeding hungry children, but it also has a secondary gain.
