Food Trucks Bring Low-Income Kids Lunch Over Summer Break

The New York City Department of Education wants to bring the food to where the kids are over the summer.

The meals are simple; the children get to choose between ham and cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches along with either regular or chocolate milk.
