Only 16% of students who receive federally funded school lunches access meals in summer programs.

While summer lunch program is broadly available, it can be hard to access -- nested within government websites, included with a variety of nutrition and food support information.

We believe by making a simple, accessible service we can increase the number of students, nation-wide, accessing summer lunches.

Range is a mobile app that allows the user to find the nearest place in time and location for a youth to get a free summer time meal.

The presentation provides a very brief overview.
