Meals will be served Monday through Friday through Aug. 13 with the exception of July 5 in observance of Independence Day. Children must be present to receive meals.

County organizers say 63 organizations have volunteered to help serve at dedicated distribution sites. Most sites will host breakfast and lunch distribution hours, however, some will provide grab-n-go meals for an allotted time.
