So, it's late in the afternoon on a hot summer day, and suddenly your kids ask, “What's for dinner?”

Here in Rochester, there are many places where kids can eat free, if it is just too hot for cooking, or you just want someone else to do the cooking for you!

There's a really cool website called, that shares lists of restaurants where kids get discounts on meals, and even free meals.
