FeedingBRkids is ensuring Baton Rouge families know where to get meals for children under 18 across the community.
Schools are closed but free breakfasts and lunches are available for children in East Baton Rouge Parish. You can get meals for children at any meal site; it doesn't have to be where they went to school this year.
Type your address below to find the meal site closest to you.

UPDATE for the families and partners we serve:
As an approved meal Sponsor through Louisiana Department of Education (LDE) and USDA, we have been given new guidelines to follow heading into the summer months. In order for LDE to ensure program integrity, we are being told to require children be present at all meal grab and go locations. If a parent or guardian is picking up for children who cannot be present, they may do so, but must fill out a form each time they pick up meals without all children present, beginning JUNE 1ST.
Some helpful information:
1. If you have only one child in the car but need meals for more than one child, you have to complete the form.
2. You will need to submit this form each time you pick up meals and do not have children present. For our sites with daily meal pick ups we are working on devising a master list of families so you are not submitting this form numerous times, but for now please plan to submit this form.
3. If you do not have access to a printer, we will have copies at all distribution sites.
4. You can download a copy of the form on Three O'Clock Project's website (www.threeoclockproject.org/covid), on the COVID page at the very top in ORANGE ink.
We hope this does not cause inconvenience, but please know that due to this being a federally funded program, we must do our part to show meals are only going to eligible children, 18 and under. We cannot jeopardize our funding with LDE, and must abide by federal regulations. We hope to continue serving meals through the summer, for all the families who need the support during this time.
Un aviso para las familias y los socios a los que servimos: En asociación con el Departamento de Educación de Louisiana (LDE) y el USDA, nos han dado nuevas reglas para seguir en los meses de verano. Para que LDE garantice la integridad del programa, los niños deben presentarse en todos los sitios de comida.Si un padre o guardián está recogiendo a los niños que no pueden estar presentes, pueden hacerlo, pero deben completar un papeleo cada vez que recogen las comidas sin todos los niños presentes.
Estos reglas empiezan 6/1/2020
