School Day Cafe will offer free drive-up dinner service to area children beginning Monday, April 20, in addition to the free breakfasts and lunches the nonprofit organization already offers.
The service, which began mid-March as a response to school closures triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, allows for any child in and around the Santa Clarita Valley to receive a free pre-packaged breakfast, lunch and dinner at select area schools.
Each day, School Day Cafe hands out thousands of meals to area children 18 and younger, whether they’re enrolled in local school districts or not. As of April 15, School DayCafe was handing out more than 8,000 meals each day.
The drive-up lunch service is provided from noon to 1 p.m. each weekday and is available to area children aged 18 and younger. One bagged or boxed lunch and breakfast are provided per child during this window.
Beginning April 20, one bagged or boxed dinner will also be provided at the locations marked with an asterisk (*) below.
