MEDFORD, Ore. – Many kids are enjoying the break from school this summer, but for families who rely on free breakfast and lunch programs offered during the school year, the summer break can be a difficult time.

Now through the end of August, the Medford and Phoenix-Talent School Districts are providing free lunch and breakfast at selected sites through the Summer Food Service Program. Drop-in meals are open to all kids aged 1 through 18, no application is needed. Adults can also get a meal for a small charge.
