Several middle schools within SA’s North East Independent School District network will provide free meals to school-aged kiddos Friday, News4SA reports.

The free grub — available at select school campuses February 19 from noon to 2 p.m. — will consist of a lunch for Friday and a bag of food for the weekend. Guardians will be allowed to purchase additional meals for $4.35.

The meals are free for all children 18 and under, regardless of which school district in which the child is registered.

Meals will be provided at the following campuses:
  • Eisenhower – 8231 Blanco Rd
  • Garner – 4302 Harry Wurzbach Rd
  • Krueger – 438 Lanark Dr
  • Nimitz – 5426 Blanco Rd
  • Jackson – 4538 Vance Jackson Rd
  • Ed White – 7800 Midcrown Dr
  • John H. Wood – 14800 Judson Rd
The news station notes that this will not operate as a drive-thru distribution event, and families will have the option to eat onsite or take the meals to go.
