NORTH CAROLINA, USA — During the summer months, some kids are known to sleep in and travel to the beach with their families and enjoy their break, while others worry about where they’re going to get their next meal.
Food insecurity is an ongoing problem in some communities and increases in the summer when children cannot rely on the meals they receive at school.
Several school districts across the Triad and surrounding areas are announcing dates for their annual summer meal program.
Here’s when each county will provide meals to children this summer:
Alamance-Burlington School System
The meals are offered from June 12 through August 18 and will be open to students ages 2 to 18.
“We expect to serve 1000 meals a day including breakfast, snacks and lunch at various locations Spencer Brown, CEO of ABSS Child Nutrition.
Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools
The summer food program with WS/FCS runs from 20 June to 11 August. The meals are free for everyone aged 18 and under.
It includes school-based meal sites and mobile delivery to other locations in the community. Read more on the school district’s website.
