Volunteers at the Coleman Community Center are helping ensure that kids are fed through the Metropolitan Action commission's summer food service program.

The program focuses on programs that are in low income areas. It provides free breakfast and lunch meals, every day, Monday through Friday.

Most sites are called open sites.

"Children can just come in, there's no eligibility criteria, there's no ID's being checked, all we want to know is they're between 18 and under, and they want to eat," said one of the workers.

The federally funded program has the support of Second Harvest Food bank and Metro public schools.
