Free evening meals for DeKalb area children now available at local church

DeKALB – DeKalb area children are now able to receive free summer evening meals starting this week, according to one local church.

According to a Monday social media post from Westminster Presbyterian Church in DeKalb, the free dinners for children 18 and under will be served from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday until Aug. 6 at the church, 830 N. Annie Glidden Road. There will be no meal on July 5, according to the church.

Only children 18 years old and younger are eligible. However, parents may pick up meals for their families, according to the post.

“This is pick up only,” church officials wrote in the post. “Deliveries cannot be accommodated at this time.”

According to a separate Tuesday social media post from City of DeKalb, all children are welcome and no documentation is required.
