Free summer meal program for kids

Hall County schools and the county library system are launching a program next Wednesday offering free meals twice-a-week for about six weeks to children under the age of 18.

The meals will be available at the Blackshear Place Library Wednesdays June 5-July 17 at 11:00 a.m. and Thursdays June 6-July 18 at the Gainesville Library at 12:15.

Meals must be eaten on-site, organizers say, and children must be present to receive them.
