Marietta Schools will serve free meals to students throughout summer

Marietta City Schools students won’t have to worry about missing meals while they enjoy their summer break. 

The school system will offer free breakfasts and lunches at several locations through July 31. Any child under the age of 18 will be fed, and no registration or income threshold will be required to get a meal, the school district said.  

Marietta is participating in the federal Seamless Summer Option program, which allows school districts to provide meals to students.
