Local students aren't in class this week, but a dozen elementary school cafeterias will be open and serving free lunch.

Salem-Keizer School District officials provide free meals to students over school breaks to make sure kids who rely on school-provided food don't go hungry.

Seven in ten Salem-Keizer students are low-income and qualify for free lunch at school.

Anyone 18 or younger can get lunch from noon to 12:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week. No proof of income or registration is required.

Participating elementary schools:

Bush

Candalaria

Cummings

Englewood

Four Corners

Grant

Hayesville

Kennedy

Richmond

Washington

Wright

Yoshikai
