Providing Meals for Children During this Pandemic

Providing Meals for Children During this PandemicChildren and teens age 18 and younger who rely on meals served at school can get free breakfast and lunch at locations throughout Hillsborough County while campuses are closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The federally-funded program is administered by the state’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in cooperation with Hillsborough County Public Schools. It’s one of many ways government agencies and their partners are providing meals for people who have difficulty getting food.

Under the program for kids, meals are distributed once a day for each child, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., beginning Monday, March 23 and continuing through Wednesday, April 15. No application or proof of residency or income is needed. To find a location near you, visit To find a school offering meals, please visit
