Right now, the power is still out for many families in our area following Hurricane Irma, making it hard to provide a warm meal for children.

On Thursday September 14 and Friday September 15 more than two dozen Palm Beach County schools will open their doors to make sure kids have a free nutritious breakfast and lunch.

The 27 schools will open from 7:30 a.m. to 9 a.m. for breakfast, and 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for lunch.

All children under the age of 18, as well as the adult accompanying them, are welcome to eat at one of the school sites.

Children do not have to be a registered student of the District or of the school to receive a free meal.
