COLUMBUS: Lawmakers, food bank and school representatives and other stakeholders are getting together in central Ohio to discuss ways to increase participation in a program that provides meals for children from low-income families.

They say only a fraction of eligible Ohio children who get free or reduced-price lunches during the school year participate in the federally funded Summer Food Service Program. Increasing those numbers is the focus of a summit Tuesday at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank in Grove City, just south of Columbus.

The head of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks and the director of the Governor’s Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives were among those scheduled to be on hand for the discussion.
