A new U.S. Department of Agriculture report says sales of �local foods,� whether sold direct to consumers at farmers markets or through intermediaries such as grocers or restaurants, amounted to $4.8 billion in 2008. That�s a number several times greater than earlier estimates, and the department predicts locally grown foods will generate $7 billion in sales this year. (AP Photo/Ed Zurga)

The Summer BreakSpot Program provides breakfast and lunch to kids in the community. Kids can go to the Wakulla high School, Medart Elementary School, or the Wakulla Education Center. Wakulla County does this each year to help out kids in need.

"We've served thousands, and thousands, and thousands of meals. I just wish there was a way we could get even more people involved cause its a great program for kids," said David Miller, Superintendent of the Wakulla County School District.

The free meals are funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. For a complete list of locations and times you can log onto the Wakulla County School District's website.
