    Today Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy met with Rep. Rose DeLauro and representatives of Connecticut No Kid Hungry to launch the 2014 Summer Meals Program.

    This program provides free or reduced-price lunches to children during the summer months via food truck. Currently the truck has stops planned in the New Haven, Hamden and New London areas, with more expected later in the summer.

    DeLauro emphasized that no child should go hungry. “We’ve got the food to feed them, we need the will to do it,” she said.
