Here is Where to Eat When Schools Close for Spring Break

While many families prepare to go out of town for a week of vacation, some families worry that they will not have enough food to put on the table.   Schools in Little Rock close for a week long vacation and many kids in our community rely on free breakfast and lunch at school.  Be Mighty Little Rock wants to help parents and caregivers become aware of the different locations around Little Rock with fun activities and food for youth ages 18 and under. Meal sites offer educational or enrichment activities in addition to meals, which enables children to learn and stay safe when school is out. A big thank you to USDA meal sponsors: F.E.E.D. First USA, Equal Heart, and Moody Chapel. USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
