Hillsborough County school officials providing free meals over winter break

The Hillsborough County School District says they are trying to make sure students are properly fed during the winter break and, for the first time ever, they will provide free meals over the holiday stretch.

Each "Winter Break Meal Bag" will contain 14 meals -- enough to feed one student breakfast and lunch for seven days, school officials said. In order to get a meal bag, parents and guardians had to make a previous reservation online.

The meals will be distributed starting Monday through Wednesday from noon to 7 p.m. at the Silo Bend Distribution Center in Tampa. 

It's now past the deadline to sign-up for the winter break meals. However, the school district is offering another opportunity for parents and guardians to pick up a bag at one of the district's 25 grab-and-go sites on Thursday morning from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
