Now that the last bell has rung, Denton County kids are kicking their summers into high gear. But summertime can mean food insecurity for families who rely on school districts to provide breakfast and lunch for their children.

Empty classrooms don’t have to translate to empty stomachs, though. School districts and local partner agencies have teamed up again this year to serve free meals to anyone 18 years old or younger.

For more information about the program, go to www.squaremeals.org. Check out the listings on this page for locations and serving times, or visit www.summerfood.org to view a map.
