This is the kind of thing that we like to see people and businesses doing.  In a time of crisis, like the COVID-19, coronavirus, and schools and other events being shut down, kids don't have the meals at school that many depend on.

Granite City Food and Brewery in St Cloud had a post on their Facebook page over the weekend stating that they would provide meals for kids.

Dear Friends,

As we all know, spring break is upon us and Governor Walz has closed schools temporarily in an attempt to control the spread of COVID 19 as well. We believe this is the right decision, but also understand that it may present challenges to families in the communities we serve. We'd like to help.

If you are concerned about ensuring your children have lunch, stop by Granite City Food and Brewery-St. Cloud. Every kid can receive a free lunch that contains a turkey sandwich, chips, and applesauce. Completely free, no other purchase is necessary. Just ask for a Manager and we will be happy to make it happen.

Valid at Granite City Food and Brewery in St. Cloud, Minnesota.

We are all in this together,

- Your GCFB-St. Cloud Management Team

Even though the COVID-19 is horrible, it can be scary and super inconvenient, to say the least, it can still bring a community together to help each other out.

Be well.
