Here's Where To Find Free Meals For Kids In South Florida This Summer
Thousands of families depend on the free meals their kids get at school. But just because it’s summer doesn’t mean they’ll go hungry.
There's free lunch — and in some cases, breakfast — for kids ages 18 and under all over South Florida with help from the federal government: in schools, libraries, churches and other locations.
One way to find the nearest location offering free meals is to text the word “food” to 877-877 and reply with your zip code.
