The Summer Meals Act is a step in the right direction and has broad, bipartisan support. Advanced by Rep. Don Young, an Alaska Republican, in the House and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a New York Democrat, in the Senate, the bill expands the possibilities for program sponsors. Among other things, the bill would allow summer meal sites where at least 40 percent of the children in the community qualify for free or reduced price lunches to be classified as "open sites." At "open sites," meals are served for free to any child on a first-come, first-served basis. Sponsors are then reimbursed for the number of meals provided at sites.
