School’s out in Central Florida and that means students can’t rely on free and reduced lunch programs for breakfasts and lunches over the next two months.

That’s where a nonprofit like Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida comes in.

They provide 8,000 hot meals every day to kids in need in the area.

This week the Education Desk met with Second Harvest’s Vice President Greg Higgerson to talk about why it’s not just important for children to keep learning, but also to keep eating healthy over the summer break.
