Community organizations and businesses are working to make sure kids have full bellies while school is out for the COVID-19 pandemic.

MEADOWS CAFE

Meadows Cafe in Terre Haute will be offering kids free meals Monday through Friday until school starts back up.

Owners told us they know that many kids rely on school lunches to have warm meals - and that's why they stepped up.

Meadows Cafe is located at 2800 Poplar Street in Terre Haute.

SAINT BENEDICT CHURCH

Saint Benedict Church in Terre Haute will be giving away grab and go lunches Monday through Friday. That will take place from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m.

They are located at 9th and Ohio Streets in Terre Haute.

VIGO COUNTY SCHOOL CORPORATION AND OTHER PARTNERS

Some food distribution sites have changed, and we have a new site. Hoosier Prairie Elementary and Christway.net are now pickup sites. (Thanks to volunteers from Faith Wesleyan Church for staffing the Hoosier Prairie site.)

Most sites 11-noon, M-F. Lunch, breakfast for the next day, and milks for kids 18 and younger, VCSC special education students 22 and younger.

Bloomfield Junior/Senior School - From March 16 to March 20 and then from March 30 to April 3 - kids will be able to receive a breakfast and lunch food package. Call the school at 812-384-9520 to make arrangements.
