More than 27,000 low-income Santa Barbara County children count on their school lunch programs to help stay nourished. However, when summer comes and school lets out, food insecurity can become a serious problem.
But now, there's a program in place to help feed those kids healthy breakfasts and lunches, five days a week for eight weeks. It's part of the No Kid Hungry campaign and it was spearheaded by Oscar-winning actor and Santa Barbara resident Jeff Bridges. Locally, it's called Food4Kids.
