CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- More than 400 sites across West Virginia will participate in a summer meal program for students.

The federal Summer Food Service Program provides free meals in lower-income areas to school-age and preschool children who don't have access to federal school breakfast or lunch programs.

Feeding sites announced Monday by the West Virginia Department of Education include schools, churches, parks and community action agencies.

The department says 58 percent of West Virginia schoolchildren on average depend on free or reduced-priced meals at school.
