A new program headed by the Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) will help needy Escondido families feed their children once school gets out for the summer.
The EUHSD has teamed up with the U.S. Department of Agriculture for its healthy 2015 Summer Feeding School Program which will offer free meals to kids 18 and under over summer.
