TWIN FALLS, Idaho — It's already almost the end of the school year!

For students that depend on school for breakfast and lunch, the time off from school can be a challenge.

When schools switched over to virtual learning because of the coronavirus pandemic, the Twin Falls School District began offering free meals for students struggling with food insecurity. It's a program the district says will continue into the summer.

There is one big change: unlike past summers, students won't be allowed to stay on campus to eat their meals because of coronavirus concerns. Instead, they will have to "grab n' go."

The district will provide breakfast and lunch to children 1-18 free of charge.

The district says both meals will be given at the same time from the front of the schools.

Meals for adults are not free, but the district says adults may purchase meals--just like their summer program-- $3.30 for breakfast and $4.55 for lunch.
