PARADISE, Calif. - Coronavirus concerns are forcing students across the North State to be out of school for the next few weeks. Some of those students rely on their schools to feed them.

Paradise Unified School District students are able to keep getting free lunch while schools are shut down by coronavirus concerns.

They can stop by any of the schools in Paradise from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Superintendent, Tom Taylor says they have been preparing just in case.

"Unfortunately we had a little experience with the fire and our staff that’s the way they are, our director of food services has been preparing for this for the last few weeks. not the direction that we would hope to go but considering the circumstances," Taylor said.

He says there are more than 1,700 students in their school district, which includes Cedarwood Elementary, Pine Ridge School, Paradise Ridge Elementary, Paradise Intermediate School and Achieve Charter School.

Taylor says it doesn’t matter what school you attend, you can stop by any of them to get a free meal.

However, Achieve Charter School in Chico won't start the lunch program until Wednesday. Students should return on March 27.

School officials say you don’t need anything when you stop by – as long as you are under the age of 18 they’ll give you a free meal.
