City dishes out 4.4M free summer meals to kids, up 11% from 2013


The city has doled out a whopping 4.4 million free summer meals so far — an 11% increase from last year.

The wildly popular breakfasts and lunches are available to any kids until Aug. 29 at more than 1,200 sites around the city.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who visited a handful of the locations Saturday, said more kids need to be aware of the program.

“In this prosperous country of ours, we have to make sure our young men and women have healthy options,” said Maloney (D-Manhattan). “The lunches are really great. Corn salad, a nice sandwich, fresh fruit — they are nice, nutritious meals.”
