King City schools to serve free meals to children beginning Monday

Del Rey and Arts Magnet elementary schools to distribute 'grab-and-go' packages for youth

KING CITY — Elementary schools in King City will offer free meals to children ages 1 through 18 beginning Monday, March 23.

King City High School already offers free meals on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. Monday will mark the first day of weekday meals at Del Rey Elementary School and King City Arts Magnet School from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.

No meals are served from Chalone Peaks Middle School or Santa Lucia Elementary School.

“They’ll drive through and we’ll ask how many children, because it’s for children,” said Chris Artea, food services director for King City Union School District.

Artea noted that children do need to be present, per national school lunch regulations.

“We’ll give them their breakfast and lunch, so they’re going to get both meals,” she said about the meal packages that children will receive.
