Local Meal Prep Company Giving Free Meals to Kids During Extended Break

School districts across North Texas have shut down school in hopes of stopping the spread of the coronavirus, especially in young people.

While the closures are meant to help, for the countless children who depend on free and reduced lunches at school, their families may be wondering where their next meal will come from. Dallas Prep Kitchen, a meal preparation company in Dallas, is trying to help.

“There is a very large number of young students that really only get a chance to eat when they are at school. So this extended school closure has really put a lot of children at the terrible situation of not receiving the right amount or type of nourishment that they need,” Kyle Clark, owner and CEO of Dallas Prep Kitchen said. “We know that being malnourished will cause children’s immune systems to weaken and resulting in higher possibilities of catching the virus and even worse not being able to fight the virus off.”

A portion of the proceeds from their daily sales will pay for the donated meals. There is also a link for people to donate on their website.

Dallas Prep Kitchen sells chef-inspired, healthy meals that can be delivered or picked up by customers.

It was great talking with you earlier and I think this little bit of good news will be a nice change for everyone.
