Central Coast Funds for Children has awarded the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County $3,000 for its Summer Meals Program.

When low-income children and teenagers no longer have access to free or reduced-priced meals they would normally receive at school, the program fills that need by providing healthy meals for those at risk of experiencing hunger.

The program provides up to 1,700 children and teenagers with one or more free meals (breakfast, lunch, and/or snack), according to the Food Bank.

The meals are distributed at schools, youth programs, summer camps, libraries and affordable housing communities.
