The DeKalb County School Nutrition Department has expanded its mobile Free Lunch summer program by adding two more stops on the route through July 26.

The new stops are at Greenbrook Park at 812 Fisher Avenue Monday through Friday from 2:10 p.m. until 2:40 p.m. and at DeKalb County High School at 1130 West Broad Street from 12 noon until 1 p.m. (starting Monday, July 15)

The meals are provided to all children ages 18 and younger without charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, etc. No sign up or documentation required.

“We are targeting areas with a high concentration of children and will be delivering lunches to those areas Monday-Friday. The meals are free to anyone 18 and under and are funded through the Department of Human Services “Summer Food Service Program”. We hope to feed a lot of children on our route.
