Beloit kicks-off summer feeding program

State Superintendent of Schools Tony Evers visits Beloit to help kick off the school district's summer feeding program. Evers told dozens of children and their families, gathered for a picnic in the Beloit Memorial High School Gym Wednesday, proper nutrition is linked to school performance. Evers says Beloit has the fourth highest rate of students on free or reduced lunches in the state. The superintendent says while many students dream of getting out of school for summer vacation, other student spend those months suffering from hunger. Evers used the visit to promote the federally funded summer feeding program, saying it was underutilized with only one-in-four eligible students participating.
