It's spring break for kids this week, which means students are not getting the typical cafeteria lunches they are accustomed to eating.
One individual wanted to ensure the kids in his neighborhood would still have access to free lunches. Michael Reppert coordinated with Little Dipper apartment manager for the complex to host the lunches. He also solicited donations from Walmart and Safeway to provide food for the kids. After coordinaating with the Hunter Elementary School Vice Principal, the "Free Lunch" program was initiated.
Reppert said he was worried about children who depend on their free school meals, as many kids eat not only lunch at school but breakfast and dinner meals as well.
Hunter Elementary is looking at adopting the successful program again next year.
