Free lunches are available to children in South Wise through a Tarrant Area Food bank program.

Kids can eat free at neighborhood sites sponsored by the food bank in collaboration with community organizations.

The summer meal sites and the dates and times of meals are as follows:

Victory Learning Center
309 CR 4850, Newark

Starting this week, lunch is at 11 a.m., Monday through Friday, through Aug. 22. The site will be open July 4th.

Seven Hills Elementary School
654 FM 3433, Newark

Lunch is at 11 a.m. during a weeklong camp June 23-27.

Godfrey Pegues Library
207 Hudson St., Newark

Lunch is at 11 a.m. during a month-long Reading Camp on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, July 7-31.

Each year, the Texas Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like Tarrant Area Food Bank to provide free meals to children when school is out for the summer.

There are no income requirements or registration. Any child under age 18 may come to eat. Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.

To date, Tarrant Area Food Bank is collaborating with community organizations and apartment complexes to provide summer meals for kids at 25 sites in Tarrant, Parker and Wise counties.
