The free packaged meals will be distributed in a drive-thru fashion. No one will need to exit personal vehicles; and if the child is not present, a form of ID or proof of enrollment will need to be presented on site.
Walkers and bike riders are also welcome to grab a meal to go.
The free meals were originally scheduled to end on Dec. 17 but the program has since been extended to last through the last day of school for students on May 26.
