Berkeley Unified School District, or BUSD, unveiled the plan for its summer free meal program Wednesday, which will continue through August 17.

Free grab-and-go meals will be available to anyone 18 years old or younger starting June 15. In addition to the meals, produce boxes and groceries will be available on specific days due to donations from Bay Cities Produce and the Berkeley Food Network.

Meals are available for pickup Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Rosa Parks and Washington elementary schools; Longfellow, Willard and Martin Luther King Jr. middle schools; and Berkeley High School. According to BUSD, the meals will include breakfast and lunch, with fresh fruit, milk, entrees and sides.

Those age 13 or older must wear face coverings when picking up the food, according to BUSD.
