School is wrapping up soon in the Yakima Valley, and for some kids, school offers the one meal they can rely on for not going hungry all day.

The good news is that thanks to No Kid Hungry, there are free food programs in the area to keep kids from going hungry.

If you or someone you know needs free breakfast and lunch for their children this summer, just text the word "Food" to 877877 then enter your ZIP code when it asks. It will then automatically send you the nearest location of a free food program near you.

You can also donate to No Kid Hungry through the West Valley Foursquare Church.

Here are a few items that are needed this summer.

  • Boxes/bags of cereal
  • Cans of ravioli or Spaghetti O’s
  • Pasta and sauce (cans only, no jars)
  • Fruit snacks
  • Cans of fruit / veggies
  • Cup O’ Noodles or Top Ramen
  • Large cans of soup
  • Apple sauce cups
  • Pudding cups
  • Microwave popcorn
  • Macaroni & cheese
