Changes to meal service for some local school districts take effect Tuesday.

For the Lucia Mar Unified School District, those 18-years-old and younger can pick up meals for free twice a week beginning Tuesday.

Each pick will include meals for the following days until the next pick-up.

Mondays and Wednesdays, meals can be picked up from 7 to 8:30 a.m. or 11:30 to 12:30 p.m. at Nipomo High and Dana, Grover Beach, Oceano and Fairgrove elementary schools.

Meals will also be distributed on Mondays and Wednesdays from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. or noon to 1 p.m. at Mesa and Judkins middle schools.

No sign-up is needed to receive the meals.

Students in the Lompoc Unified School District can also receive free meals beginning this week.

Breakfast and lunch will be distributed Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 1 pm. at all LUSD sites.

Adults picking up meals for their children must have proof of student enrollment, which can be the child's name and school they attend or their children's student ID number.

The district asks everyone to wear face coverings at pickup.

The free meal program will end at the end of the year.

The Paso Robles Unified School District is also providing free meals. For more information on that program, click here.
