'Feed the Children' Program Kicks Off This Week

Monday marked the first day of summer break for Lansing kids, and the kick off of the "Feed the Children" program. The program offers thousands of local students a free nutritious lunch during summer vacation.

The free boxed lunches last for one week, before the summer government food programs kick in.

Organizers say we can't let the problems with the economy hurt a child's most basic need.

Walmart offered all the food at 75- percent off and created the boxes. They will go to 14 different locations around the city.
