A New Way Palm Beach County Schools Are Helping Hungry Kids

Posted by Amanda Hicks on Thursday, October 4th, 2018 at 10:48pm.

Twelve schools in Palm Beach County are now making sure kids get a full three meals a day by beginning to serve dinner. The meals will be offered at no charge for any students in after-school programs and each will contain a meat or a protein alternative, a grain, fruit, a vegetable and milk. 

According to Feeding America, an organization providing food to hungry children, nearly 20 percent of kids do not know where their next meal is coming from. To help get this number closer to zero, twelve schools have joined 55 other sites in Palm Beach County to serve dinner on a daily basis for kids in need.

These are the schools that are now participating:

Congress Middle School, Boynton Beach

 Osceola Creek Middle School, Loxahatchee

 Woodlands Middle School, Lake Worth

 Lake Worth High

 Conniston Middle School, West Palm Beach

 South Olive Elementary School, West Palm Beach

 Palm Beach Lakes High School, West Palm Beach

 Palmetto Elementary School, West Palm Beach

 Royal Palm Beach High School

 Santaluces High School, Lantana

 John I. Leonard High School, Greenacres

 Pahokee High School
