  NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne) -- Nashville Public Schools says it's served more than 88,000 meals to the city’s children since schools were closed mid-March.

School officials say the effort hit a high mark Thursday when nearly 15,000 meals were served in a single day.

The system is providing boxed breakfast and lunch meals at 17 drive through locations and along six food bus routes.

Meals are distributed weekdays between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

Remember to bring the children along when you go to pick up a meal. Federal regulations require they be on hand to receive a free meal.

MNPS is maintaining an interactive map highlighting distribution locations for meals and other services here.
