Free summer meals will be offered again this June for students in the Bakersfield City School District. Spokeswoman Irma Cervantes says you don’t even have to be in summer school to take part in what’s basically an extension of the breakfast and lunches offered to kids in need during the regular semester, and the meals are open to anyone under 18 in the district boundaries. No registration is required. Several school sites in the Panama Buena Vista Union School District will also offer free meals next month.
