JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Students in Duval County can get free meals this summer, thanks to the Summer BreakSpot Program. Chartwells, the company that provides meal services to Duval County Public Schools, is participating in the program.

The program aims to help children from at-risk families and others in the community to get free snacks or meals.

The program consists of around 285 sites through town. 200 are through the Jacksonville Children's Commission. Those sites are mainly at community sites like libraries and churches. Children there can get lunch and either a morning or afternoon snack.

The other 85 sites are offered through Duval County Schools. Any child 18 years or younger may visit any sites during open hours and get a free meal. No ID or registration is required.

Each location has different hours. You can check to see where the various locations in your area are by clicking here.
