Children picking up lunch and a breakfast for the next day at four Fort Worth ISD facilities were gifted free books to take home this week.
The bagged books – distributed at Clifford Davis Elementary School, De Zavala Elementary School, Como Montessori School and Hubbard Heights Elementary School – were made available on a first come, first serve basis.
The free books are made available to children at four Meals To Go sites on behalf of Read Fort Worth.
Meals to Go sites in the Fort Worth ISD will continue to operate as scheduled under the Stay at Home order announced by city and county officials, March 24, 2020, as it is an essential service to the community.
