    UPDATE 3/20/2020: Locations have changed. If your child needs food or lunch during break, below is a list of locations where it will be provided for free. You can visit the district's website for more information at https://www.washoeschools.net/Page/14379

    Working in partnership, the Washoe County School District and Food Bank of Northern Nevada are providing free meals for all children, aged 18 and under, at the following sites. You do not need to provide identification or information about your family to receive these free meals.
