NEW YORK (AP) - New York City will provide free meals to children at 1,100 locations across the city this summer.

The Department of Education’s summer meals program runs from June 29 to Sept. 2. It’s intended to provide nutritious food when school is not in session.

Anyone 18 years old and younger is eligible to receive a meal. Sites that will be serving food include schools, parks, pools and libraries.

The breakfast menu for the program will include bagels, an egg and cheese sandwich and yogurt and granola. The lunch menu includes pizza, hamburgers, sandwiches and chicken pasta salad.

Daily menus and location details are available on the SchoolFood app.

The summer meals program served 8.2 million meals in 2015. That’s up from 7.1 million in 2012.
