Edmond Public Schools will provide free meals at seven locations to any child 18 and younger, the district said Tuesday.

The children must pick up their meals in person. Two locations will also provide a drive-thru option.

Any child will be provided a free meal regardless of if they qualify for free of reduced-price meals or what school they attend. 

The locations will provide the meals:

  • Ida Freeman Elementary School (12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.) [drive-thru option available]
  • Sunset Elementary School (12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.) [drive-thru option available]
  • Reed's Landing Apts (10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.)
  • Uni-City Mobile Home Park (11:30 a.m. to Noon)
  • Lamplighter Mobile Village (10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.)
  • Coffee Creek Apts (11:30 a.m. to Noon)
  • Windrush Apts (12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.)

The district said it is approaching local churches to help provide meals to children in the southwest corner, central and north-central areas of the district. 

The Regional Food Bank plans to continue its backpack program and the Edmond school district may be looking for volunteers to help pack food to continue the program.
