"There's no such thing as a free lunch," economist Milton Friedman once said.
Officials and volunteers at Zion United Church of Christ in Lehighton beg to differ. Every weekday they offer free lunches to any student in the Lehighton Area School District.
Kenneth Leffler, church secretary, said the program was started because of the large volume of students in the district qualifying for free or reduced lunches.
"In the summer, they don't have that available," he said.
