Fort Wayne Community Schools planned to provide free meals for children beginning Tuesday, in an effort to feed those who are missing out on school meals during the current COVID-19 closures. Meals are available for all children, regardless of the school they attend, through high school ages, according to a news release.

FWCS will distribute breakfast and lunch packs 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. daily at all FWCS elementary schools. Children must be present to pick up the meals, which will be distributed by drive-up or walk-up. Meals will be available Monday through Friday during the entire closure, including during spring break (March 30-April 3).

FWCS currently plans to be closed through April 10. Officials will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and follow the recommendations of federal, state and local health officials.
