The Treasure Coast Food Bank will serve meals to children 18-years-old and younger throughout the summer beginning June 6.

More than 50,000 students on the Treasure Coast are eligible for free and reduced price meals, but the food bank says only about 6 percent of those students participate in their Summer Meals program.

Treasure Coast Food Bank said they have a goal to provide 300,000 meals over a 10-week period to children in need.

There are 35 sites offering the program, and each will offer two of three options: breakfast, lunch, or a snack. The meals will feature fresh-made sandwiches and wraps, hand-made salads, and fresh cut fruits.
