Here is where children can receive free meals this summer in Southwest Nashville

The Metro Nashville Action Commission, a government agency that partners with families in poverty, is offering free meals for children at more than 80 locations in Davidson County, including eight locations in the southwest area of Nashville.

The free service is offered in areas where at least 50% of children qualify for free and reduced meals during the school year, according to a news release.

Children do not need to provide any documentation to receive the meals. Last summer, the Metro Nashville Action Commission prepared 190,008 breakfast and lunch meals at 87 sites.

In addition to this service, Metro Nashville Public School offers free lunches to children at J.E. Moss Elementary School and Gra-Mar Middle School. Adults 19 and older can receive meals at a reduced cost of $3.75, according to MNPS. There are no income or registration requirements.
