DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama officials will soon resume a free summer lunch program for students.
The state Department of Education offers free meals to children while school is out to make sure low-income children don't go hungry.
Reports say that roughly 137,000 children participated in the program last year. The goal is to serve more than 500,000 children who already receive free or reduced-price lunches at schools.
Authorities said the state is trying to improve participation in rural areas.
