SALT LAKE CITY — Schools may be closed, but that doesn't mean students will be going without some very important meals.

A lot of schools have given Fox 13 their plans and there are some variations in the way they're being handled.

The Tooele County School District is offering free breakfast and lunch to students 18 years old and younger.

These are the locations where you can pick up meals, but "grab and go" only.

The meals can be picked up from now until March 27, from 11 a-m to 12 p-m each day.

Park City School District will also be offering grab and go breakfast and lunch bags for all Park City School District students.

Parents or guardians can pick up the meals from Ecker Middle School or Treasure Mountain Junior High between 8 a.m. and 10 a-m Monday through Friday.

Students in the Granite School District can get "Grab and Go" lunches.

The program will go for two weeks, but meals will not be provided this Thursday through Monday due to the previously scheduled spring break.

Lunch will be available 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at all Granite school locations except Hunter High School due to its recent closure for deep cleaning.

Breakfast will be available from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. at participating locations.

"We have some of the most impoverished schools in the state,and in addition to that, we have the largest portion of refugee students in the state as well," Granite School District Spokesman, Ben Horsley said. "And so being able to provide those types of services in a way that doesn't hinder or-- that actually works to prevent the spread of disease-- warms our hearts to be able to provide that service to these kids."
