School may be out for summer, but over a dozen RPS 205 schools are staying open to offer free breakfasts and lunches for kids in need weekdays through July 11.

As the daughter of a retired Rockford teacher, I have heard a lot about the staggering number of kids in this city who would go hungry if it wasn't for the free meals they receive at school. She spent countless hours worrying about these kids when school was not in session, and I know this summer service from Rockford schools eases a lot of people's worries.

Here's the list of school locations and times that kids 18 and younger can receive meals from the Rockford Public Schools:

If you are interested in the meal times and days at Jefferson, Auburn and Guilford High Schools, you can find the complete list here.
