Georgia agency seeks organizations to run summer meal sites

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia officials are looking for organizations to run sites where low-income kids can get free meals during summer.

The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning says schools, universities, colleges and nonprofits are eligible to run the programs for low-income kids while school is out. The program is federally funded, and sponsor organizations receive training from the state to set up and run meal sites.

DECAL Nutrition Services Director Falita Flowers says the program depends on organizations that run meal sites. Flowers says kids may not get nutritious meals during the summer without the program.

Officials say anyone looking for information on becoming a sponsor organization can visit the DECAL web site .
