FORSYTH COUNTY — The University of North Georgia is providing free meals to children in eight counties, including Forsyth, as part of the Summer Food Service Program.
The program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning.
According to a news release from the college, all children 18 and younger are eligible. However, those 19 and older who have a mental or physical disability — as determined by an educational agency — and who participate in a school program for the mentally or physically disabled are also eligible.
