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