Here is Where to Eat When Schools Close for Winter Break

While many families prepare to share a meal and exchange gifts over the holiday break, some families worry that they will not have enough food to put on the table.   Schools in Little Rock close for a two week winter vacation and many kids in our community rely on free breakfast and lunch at school.  Be Mighty Little Rock wants to help families know where to go to access a free meal. Participating locations offer free meals and enrichment activities for kids and teens 18 and younger.

Here is a map of the various sites offering meals for youth ages 18 and under. For more information please email Kay Kay at
