UTICA, N.Y. -- Wednesday WKTV told you that Franco’s in Ilion I offering up free lunch for kids all summer long, and that offer now extends to Franco’s in North Utica.

For the entire summer break, Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., kids can get a slice of pizza, a bag of chips and a soda or juice box for free.

The age cut off is 18 but Franco’s won't turn away anyone in need, and this isn't the first nice gesture Franco’s has done to help the community.

"We’ve done so many donations over the years and we thought why not pair up with our Ilion location and go ahead with Danny Mendez, and what he’s doing for the community and it’s a great thing. We do have an age cap of 18, but really at the end of the day you know anybody that’s hungry – we’re not going to let them go without,” said Amy Aceto, the manager.

Franco's employees encourage kids not to be shy, and to stop in for their free lunch, or stop in to take a break from the heat.
