There’s a new text service available for free meal pick up.

A group of Stanford University students is helping families across the Bay Area find grab-and-go meal sites.

The graduate and undergrad students created a text service in which parents text their ZIP code to 855-906-3016 and receive an automated list of the nearest free meal pick-up sites.

The service uses data from a map of all the sites that the Stanford group also created. The map includes hours of operation for each pick-up location.
