Columbus area children can keep up a healthy diet while on vacation this summer through the Summer Food Service Program.  The program is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and local organizations that provides free meals for children.  Sue O’Donnell with the Columbus School District says the district has announced it will be participating in the program this year.  Meals will be served at the Roundy Elementary School Cafeteria Tuesday, July 5th through Thursday, July 28th from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  There are no income requirements or registration involved, and any child under the age of 19 may come to eat lunch.
