Free breakfast, lunch and snacks will be offered to children 18-years-old and younger in Wichita as part of the Kid Power Café Summer Food Service Program. KMUW’s Abigail Wilson reports the program begins Monday.

Wichita Public Schools has partnered with Kid Power, a non-profit organization that aims to teach students about the importance of eating healthy. The free meals are available to all students, not just those who received free and reduced meals during the school year.

The Kid Power Café program in Wichita runs through July 28. Breakfast will include cereal or bread and milk. Lunch will consist of an entrée, fruit, vegetables and milk.

Meals will be available at the Downtown YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club in Oaklawn, Coleman Middle School, Pleasant Valley Middle School, Benton Elementary and 36 other locations in and around Wichita.

Meals are also available for adults for a small fee.
