PARADISE, Calif. - Families on the Ridge this summer with children are getting help from the Paradise School District with the meal security program "Meet up and eat up."

The school district expects to serve 150 meals per day to kids 18 and under in Paradise and Magalia from June 10-August 2. 

Adults must pay $3.50 to get a meal of their own. 

The program does require that all meals be eaten on site.  

The food trucks offer kid-friendly meals like burgers and taquitos or sandwiches. 

"It's about moving forward, with the community, getting back to our feet. What better way to do it than with food for kids?" said the deputy director of food services for the Paradise Unified School District, Tanya Harter. 

This is the fifth year for the summer food program. 

Harter explained that there are only three sites offering the meals, a decrease from previous years because the community became smaller. 

At Terry Ashe Park, lunch will be served from 11:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. 

At Pine Ridge School:

  • Breakfast will be served from 7:45-9 a.m.
  • From June 10-June 29, lunch will be served at the Pine Ridge location from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.
  • However, from July 1 through August 2 it will be served from 1-2 p.m.
  • Pine Ridge will also offer an afternoon snack from 3-3:35 p.m. July 1 through August 2. 

At Cedarwood Elementary, from 11-11:15 a.m. on June 10 through June 21.
