Meridian Middle School will host a neighborhood night May 12 with food trucks, live music and activities for families.

The celebration is from 5-8 p.m. at the school campus, 1507 W. Eighth St.

Admission is free, with food available for purchase. Attendees are encouraged to bring an item to donate to the Meridian Food Bank, which will enter them into a drawing for prizes.

Two stages will feature local entertainment, and local vendors and service groups will set up shop, including the Micron Foundation and Discover Technology STEM bus, the Meridian Library District bookmobile, and the Meridian police and fire departments. Leaders from Meridian City Council, the mayor’s office and the West Ada School District will also attend.

The proceeds from a school-wide canned food drive will be presented to the Meridian Food Bank during the event.

“We here at MMS want to celebrate our school and surrounding neighborhood,” according to a press release from the school. “We invite all members of the community to join us for this celebration of the heart of Meridian.”
