LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky's largest school system is giving out free breakfast and lunch to children during the summer.

Jefferson County Public Schools' summer food service program gives meals to any child 18 or younger at more than 100 schools, churches and community centers around the city.

The program also uses a retired school bus that has been converted into a mobile dining cafeteria. The bus stops at nearly three dozen sites daily.
