JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Duval County children under the age of 18 can receive a free, nutritious lunch or snack by visiting Summer Lunch sites located throughout the city.

The program, which is presented by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and is locally sponsored by the Jacksonville Children's Commission, has served 89,000 lunches and 74,000 snacks at 172 locations since June 11, according to a release from the city.

The lunch program will continue until Friday, August 10. The meals are available to all children during the summer when school breakfasts and lunches are not available, the release said.

Children do not need to apply for or be enrolled in certain programs; the children just need to show up at specified meal times.
