Healthy School Lunches, Olympic High School Boxer

Featured Audio

More than half of the children in Cleveland live in poverty, so for some, the nutrition they get from free school meals are all they eat that day. We’ll look at how healthy the menus are in schools around the region and speak with one district’s hopes to provide free meals all year round. Plus, ideastream health reporter Sarah Jane Tribble examines efforts to put healthier options in corner stores, where many get their weekly groceries. And finally, a debrief with David C. Barnett on a high school boxer headed to Rio with a chance to bring home Olympic gold. That's on The Sound of Ideas.
