MINNEAPOLIS - Almost every kid looks forward to summer vacation, and spending their time outside school walls.
For parents who are struggling financially, however, summer brings the increased challenge of making sure their children eat three times a day.
A number of organizations and school districts are doing their best to fill the void. Both the Minneapolis and St. Paul Public Schools will offer free meals to qualifying students this summer, as will the St. Paul Public Libraries and others across the state.
To find out where to get free meals for children of economically challenged families across Minnesota, check out the Second Harvest website.
