School district has free meals for children in June

The Parker Unified School District will be providing free breakfasts and lunches to all young people under the age of 18 on weekdays during the month of June. They will also be delivering lunches to those summer youth programs that have registered with them and pre-ordered meals.

Superintendent Jim Lotts said this is all done through the Federal school lunch program, and is part of the district’s desire to see children have nutritious meals in the summer as they do during the school year.

The meals will be served in the cafeteria at Blake Primary School. Breakfast will be served from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., while lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

No registration or identification will be needed. Children must consume all food on-site. For adults, the fee will be $2.25 for breakfast and $3 for lunch.
