MARBLE FALLS — School is out, but the lunch bell will still be ringing.

To ensure Highland Lakes children receive a good lunch — and in some cases, breakfast — local school districts are providing free summer meals to youth ages 18 and younger starting June 1.

In Marble Falls, there are two locations for kids to get breakfast and lunch:

• Marble Falls Elementary School, 1909 Broadway in Marble Falls. The site is open Monday-Friday. Breakfast is served 8-8:30 a.m.; lunch is noon-12:30 p.m.

• Marble Falls Middle School, 1511 Pony Circle in Marble Falls. The site is open Monday-Thursday. Breakfast is served 8-8:30 a.m.; lunch is noon-12:30 p.m.

The Marble Falls Independent School District Food Service Department is continuing its innovative Mustang Summer Lunch and Book Bus in Granite Shoals this summer. Food service staff has outfitted a bus to take hot lunches to students who live in Granite Shoals.

The buses also will have books for the students to take home and read.

The Mustang Summer Lunch and Book Bus will make three stops Monday-Friday in Granite Shoals for lunch.

Those locations and times are:

• Bus Stop No. 1, Valley View Park, 1531 Kingshigh Drive in Granite Shoals, 11-11:25 a.m.
