Bloomfield schools this summer are again offering free breakfast and lunch for local youths 18 and under. The program, funded by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture and in its eighth year in Bloomfield, provided more than 27,000 meals in 2015, according to district officials. It is aimed at providing meals for needy children when school is not in session. "This is especially important in Bloomfield, where more than half of all students receive free or reduced price meals during the school year," said Susan A. Pinkham, director of food services for Bloomfield Public Schools. "Summer meals also help to create the foundation for a lifetime of healthy eating habits."
