Polk County Schools is expanding the opportunity for families to pick up free meals for weekends. 

Beginning Thursday, Nov. 5, meal pickup will be available at Sunny View Elementary School in addition to the existing pickup location at the district bus garage in Columbus. The bus garage is located behind Stearns Education Center.

Meals can be picked up each Thursday at both locations from 4-6 p.m.

Families with children up to age 18 can receive breakfast and lunch for both Saturday and Sunday at the distribution sites. The meals are free for families living in Polk County.

If you have any questions about the meal pick up, please contact Polk County Schools at 828-894-3051.
