The Stark County Hunger Task Force is working to make sure kids who rely on free or reduced-cost lunches during the school year don't fall through the cracks in the summer. The task force is handing out bags each Thursday that include two breakfast and two lunch meals, snacks and drinks.

Assistant Director Stephanie Sweany  says nearly all kids at four Canton elementary schools receive free or reduced lunch.
