Educators, districts and KSDE working together to feed Kansas students

Free meals available for children ages 1-18 at locations across Kansas

The Kansas State Department of Education’s Child Nutrition and Wellness team and school districts across the state are teaming up to keep Kansas children fed.

Gov. Laura Kelly signed an executive order Tuesday, March 17, closing all Kansas school buildings, which left many wondering how some students would have access to meals throughout the day.

Thousands of meals are being served each school day thanks to school nutrition professionals, administrators, community members and districts stepping forward to offer creative solutions, like curbside pick up, meal deliveries and more.

Free meals for children ages 1-18 are being served at numerous locations throughout Kansas. Check with your local school district for meal availability in your area.
