This summer the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District is making sure kids don't go hungry. 

Eight schools across Bakersfield will be serving a mid-day meal Monday through Friday. 

It's free of charge for kids from June 4 until June 29. 

District officials told 23ABC you do not have to live in the district to receive a free lunch. The district's goal is making sure no kids go hungry. 

Officials say adults will not be served unless they purchase a meal for $4.00.

Lunch will be served through the weekday from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

Here is a list of locations serving free lunch: 

McAuliffe Elementary School 

Old River Elementary School 

Berkshire Elementary School 

Seibert Elementary School 

Stine Elementary School 

Thompson Jr. High School 

Williams Elementary School 

Castle Elementary School
