SALT LAKE CITY — Granite School District is serving lunch to students even though school is out for the summer.

Children 18 years of age and under can eat free of charge, while adults above that age can pay $3.50 each for a meal.

The program serves lunch Monday through Friday during the summer, except on July 4 and July 24.

Sheldon Moore is the operations manager of food services, and he said their goal is to help students no matter the time of year.

“The Summer Feeding Program supports our goal to provide nutritious meals to students in our communities regardless of whether school is in session,” he said.

The free lunches are part of the National School Lunch program.
