CMS Offers Summer Food Service Program To Help Reduce Child Hunger in Charlotte

Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools is making sure kids in need are stayin’ cool this summer with nutritional meals.

When school is out for summer, some parents in low-income areas begin to worry about their children’s food supply. Not every kid will have access to breakfast or lunch like they normally would during the school year.

This summer, over 50 local CMS schools will provide breakfast and lunch to feed hungry children in the Charlotte community. There are also Lunch Express sites for some remote areas for students who are not able to get to a feeding site. Some sites begin their summer feeding programs on June 13.

This Summer Food Service Program provides nutritious meals at no cost to help children ages 1-18 in low-income areas get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.

CMS’s Summer Food Service Program is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture and administered through the NC Department of Public Instruction.
