Free Kids Meals for Students Amidst an Outbreak

My friends over at Laughing Planet (LP) are offering free kids meals to students on meal assistance programs during school closures amidst the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak.

At Laughing Planet we have three major pillars: sustainability, community, and health and wellness.

Qualifying for a free kids meal

As far as how students show they qualify for meal assistance, LP is using the honor system. No need to make things more difficult and stressful than they already are, especially for something crucial like having a warm meal. Swing on by one of their locations in Reno, with a mask if possible, and their staff will take care of you—no questions asked just let them know you're there for a free kids meal. #PeopleFirst.

We work on sustainability to keep Earth in shape, community to make Earth a better place, and health and wellness to keep this wonderful planet, with all of its vibrant life, healthy!

Humankind. Be Both.
