Where To Get Free Meals For Kids All Summer In Greensboro

With summer now in full swing, and hungry teenagers home from school, it's important that parents realize just how much money they're about to shell out on food. Josh King has the story (@abridgetoland).

GREENSBORO, NC - School is out for summer! For some that may mean pools and playing, but for others it means not knowing when your next meal is coming. 

The City Of Greensboro is aiming to help those kids who are in need of food while school lunch programs are on summer vacation.
