Hillsborough County, Fla. (May 30, 2019) - Kids take a break in the summer. Hunger doesn't.

Hillsborough County is once again participating in the Summer BreakSpot program, which provides free nutritious lunches and afternoon snacks to children at about 50 sites throughout the county. This year's program runs from June 3 to Aug. 2 and will provide nearly 500,000 lunches and snacks.
