A federal program that provides free meals to lower-income children during the summer will kick off in West Virginia this week.
The Summer Food Service Program provides funds to county school boards and other nonprofit organizations to provide meals to children 18 years and under.
 
Feeding sites include schools, churches, pools, parks, housing complexes and summer camps.
 
The West Virginia Department of Education's Office of Child Nutrition sponsors the program.
 
Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and other officials will launch this summer's feeding program on Wednesday at the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Center in Charleston.
