Application period set for summer food programs
SPRINGFIELD (AP) — Programs interested in providing free food to low-income Illinois students over the summer can apply soon.
Programs are available for students up to age 18 when school isn't in session. The Illinois State Board of Education says the application period for those programs is March 4 through June 15.
Education officials say the program helps fill the nutritional gap between the last day and the first day of school. They also say good nutrition helps keep young brains active and engaged in learning inside and outside the classroom.
