(KMOV.com) -- Eleven churches in north St. Louis County are working together to provide food, education and counseling to families in the Ferguson-Florissant and Riverview Gardens districts when the grand jury announcement is made.  
 
The school districts will provide food and volunteers and the churches, in turn, will open their doors if and when schools close down. 
 
Families in the Ferguson-Florissant and Riverview Gardens districts will head to the church closest to their home, out of nearly a dozen throughout the north county area. 
 
Breakfast and lunch will be available through the schools, along with classroom like activities and counselors for parents and kids.
 
For each day schools are closed, Ferguson-Florissant is anticipating providing 1,400 meals to the churches for families. Riverview Gardens expects around 500 meals to be made available each day.
 
If the districts call a half-day or don't close their doors when the grand jury announcement is made, the church services will not be put into place. Services will only be offered on full days away from the classroom.
