The Free Summer Feeding program is hosted annually in Millard.  The sites for the summer will be at Holling Heights Elementary and Millard South High School.

This program is open to any child under the age 18.  There is no paperwork required and they do not have to be a resident in the district to receive a free breakfast or lunch.  Available again this year are free parent meals, any adult that accompanies a child is eligible for a free meal.  The student meals are supported by a federal program through the USDA and the parent meals are funded by a grant from Food Bank for the Heartland.
