Here are some local places that are offering FREE lunches for kids out of school.

As of today schools across the Hudson Valley are closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic and with the closures some parents are struggling to figure out a way to make sure their children are fed lunch each day.

Some families across the Hudson Valley depend on their child's school to provide lunch each day and with schools closed some local bushiness have offered to provide lunch to many residents including the Publick House 23 in Pleasant Valley.

According to their Facebook page, "Beginning on Monday, March 16th, we will offer free bagged lunches to families in the Pleasant Valley area affected by the mandated school closures. Families in need can stop in Monday through Friday, between 11am and 1pm, to pick up two pre-bagged lunches. Lunches will include a ham and cheese or peanut butter and jelly sandwich, bag of chips, squeeze yogurt, and a juice box. Our hope is to reduce the burden felt by families during these unexpected school closures."

In Beacon parents can get free breakfast/lunch at the Beacon High School parking lot from 10-10:30 and the South Avenue Elementary parking lot between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. food will be grab and go for kids in the Beacon district.
