Local schools to serve meals to children affected by Irma


Twenty-seven schools throughout Palm Beach County will open their doors Thursday and Friday to share a meal with children affected by Hurricane Irma, the school district said.

The impacts of the storm are being felt across the community, which is why Superintendent Robert Avossa ordered the opening of schools to ensure students are receiving the meals they would have normally received at school.

Children don't have to be registered with the district or school to receive a meal.

The 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, according to the school district. All children under 18, as well as the adult accompanying them, are welcome to eat at any of the schools listed below:
