TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Bond Community Health Center is offering free meals to kids 18 years old and younger.

They’ve partnered with Second Harvest of the Big Bend for the summer.

Tracy Daniels is the site administrator and special projects coordinator at Bond Community Health Center.

“We love our community and the children need to eat," said Daniels. "So some parents are not able to afford meals for their kids, so we’re providing those meals for their kids.”

The program started Monday and goes through August 12. Kids will get two types of lunches for the day.

“This also assists us with giving back to the community as well," Daniels said. "With the pandemic coming, parents are not able to work, so this provides food for those kids.”

They say they haven’t given out as many meals as they’d like because the word hasn’t gotten around.

Volunteers will be giving out meals weekdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 1549 South Monroe Street, behind the Bond Community Health building.
