Free meals for school kids
By Kaley Dowell
In the midst of the coronavirus outbreak most elementary, middle and high schools have shut down. This, in turn, has caused kids who depend on school lunches to go without adequate food.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop in Stephenville noticed the dilemma and took initiative to help those in need throughout the community.
“We just saw general panic and worry throughout the public and even with our own workers wondering how they’re gonna feed their kids if they don’t have school. That’s when we came up with the idea of giving out free kids’ meals just to help our community out,” Assistant Manager Robbie Prestin said.
Fuzzy’s is giving free kids’ meals to children in school who are 18 years old or younger. They are offering one free meal per child, per day. It is not a onetime service; the same people can come back every day.
Fuzzy’s is also offering $1 breakfast tacos to anyone from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. although there is a three-taco limit to this offer.
Fuzzy’s is providing this through the end of March, however, Prestin wants to keep it going as long as there is a need there in the community.
“I’m gonna fight to keep it going until this whole situation is cleared and the community is back to normal,” Prestin said.
