Kids grab breakfast from a courtyard food cart paid for by a grant from Kelloggs at Santaluces High School in November 2016.

More than two dozen Palm Beach County public schools will be offering free meals to children and their families on Thursday and Friday to ensure access to nutritious meals as schools work to reopen after Hurricane Irma.

The 27 campuses will serve breakfast and lunch to anyone under 18, along with their adult caretakers, the school district said. Breakfasts will be served from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The impacts of Hurricane Irma are being felt across our community, and Superintendent Robert Avossa has ordered feeding locations be opened to ensure children are receiving the meals they would have normally received at school,” the school district said in a news release.

The food sites range from Jupiter to Delray Beach and as far west as Belle Glade and Pahokee.
