They’re opening up locations all over Bakersfield to kids who need a meal for free.
23ABC’s Adam Bowles went to one school to find out more about this program.
Welcome to the serving line, where breakfast is from 7A.M. to 8A.M. and lunch is from 11A.M.to 1P.M. If you are ages 18 and under, you don’t need any money for this line. All you need is an appetite.
“We do it for the children that are going to summer school,” Janette says. “But also all of the children who are at home that didn’t go to summer school that maybe don’t get enough to eat in the summer time, we don’t want to forget about them. We do have breakfast and lunch at eleven of our sites.”
Eleven locations across Bakersfield where you can eat two meals per day every single day free of charge with sites opening June 12th to July 21st, and you don’t even have to be from the area to come!
“All kids, from anywhere, we don’t care where you live as long as your 18 or under we will feed you for free,” Janette says.
And all the leftover food that’s not eaten is about to go to a good place.
“Trying to get one set up with the homeless center, the mission, some place like that,” Janette says.
So, if your child is hungry this summer and don’t have the money to feed them, you don’t have to worry anymore.
