Lunches for students during COVID-19 closures

Harrisburg, PA – Despite the statewide closure of schools for the next two weeks, school district will continue to provide free lunches to kids who need them.

If you have questions for your specific school, please call them. Many schools have not released exact information about when or where lunches can be picked up yet.

Some local businesses have also stepped forward out of the kindness of their heart to say that they would feed kids too.
