Free lunches available during schools’ Spring Break

PEABODY-DARST-WEBBE – There is such a thing as a free lunch. When school’s out for Spring Break this year, empty bellies won’t take the place of lunches for St. Louis Public Schools students and others.

The district’s Peabody Elementary School, 1224 S. 14th St., is hosting the food program March 16-20.

“This is a pilot, so we are just doing Peabody Elementary this time,” district Director of Communications Meredith Pierce explained in an email. “It is open to the public, no eligibility requirements.”

All children through age 18 will eat for free, and people ages 19 and up can get a meal for $1.

Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and a snack will be offered from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Meals will be provided to everyone as long as supplies last.
