ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

School might be out for the summer, but one school system is making sure kids still get fed.

The Seamless summer program provides free meals to any student in Dougherty county.

The school system teamed up with Albany parks and rec department to help feed more children this summer.

Meals will be delivered to forty-nine sites across the county, compared to 23 sites last year.

"One in five children in the nation struggle with hunger, and we have those same challenges here in Dougherty county and it's imperative that we provide these meals," said Blaine Allen with DCSS.

The program begins Tuesday and ends July 18th. Organizers hope to serve 250-thousand meals this summer.
