EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - The Evansville Salvation Army's Summer Feeding program starts Tuesday.

The statewide program is open to all kids 18 and under.

The lunch is free to anyone who is involved in the program and there is no income level requirement.

Director of Social Services, Gwen Rode, says as many as 65 students take advantage of the program during the summer months.

"Most of them are babies that are not in school," said Rode.  "We get some school aged kids because they're out due to sickness or something going on.  Throughout the summer, we go from 5 to 10 kids and to 65 and sometimes more."

Meals are served daily from 11:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
