(KEYC) - Yesterday, United States Department of Agriculture Secretary, Sonny Perdue, announced a collaboration with Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty among others to deliver meals to students in rural areas across the U.S.

Due to school closures, nearly 1,000,000 meals will be delivered to students in rural areas.

Baylor is coordinating with state officials to prioritize students who don't have access to a food service program.

Eligible school districts can apply at the appropriate state agency to validate the application which can then be submitted by the district to the Baylor Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty.
