Approximately 22 million kids eat free and low-cost meals during the school day, according to No Kid Hungry, a national movement working to end childhood hunger in America. With school closures across the country, struggling families can keep those kids fed by using the organization’s free meal finder.
The recently launched online resource, which was made in partnership with Nestle Pure Life, is available in both English and Spanish. All you have to do is enter your address using this link to find free nutritious food, which will most likely be available for pickup at a local school.
The map will also tell you what time each meal is being served at each individual location. You can also find this information by texting the word “FOOD” to 877-877.
