Looking for ways to feed your kids while school is out?

Due to the unexpected closing of schools in Okeechobee for an extended period of time, some parents may worry about how they will feed their children. The following are some of the options available:

* Beef O’Brady’s wants to do their part to ease the financial strain that everyone is beginning to feel. Beginning Monday, March 16, all kids will eat free from their kids’ menu from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. We get through times like these by neighbors helping neighbors, they said.

* Okeechobee County School Services will begin serving meals to children age 18 and under on Monday, March 23 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Okeechobee High School. This will continue until Friday, March 27. Grab and go meals will also be provided in Douglas Park from noon until 1 p.m. The children’s names will be recorded and they must return home to eat them. No one will be allowed to remain at the location to eat the meals.
