A Danville feeding program broke a record for the number of meals its served this summer.

Pittsylvania County Community Action hosted the summer-long program at the Danville Salvation Army.

About 111,000 meals were served to families with kids in school during the months of May through August.

An average of 14 hundred people came by daily for food. Only lunch was included in the program.

Most of the kids that received who ate are receive free and reduced lunche prices at school.

"You just kind of think, if they didn't get that food Monday through Friday where would they eat all summer? You know that some of the kids that had these meals, it was all they got all summer," said Janice Dahlin, a co-captain with the Danville Salvation Army.

PCCA paid for the meals through United State Department of Agriculture grants.
