About the Student Meal Program

The United States Department of Agriculture has extended the waiver granted to North Carolina Public Schools to allow schools to continue participating in the Summer Nutrition Program through the end of the 2021-22 school year. This means that every child 18 years or younger that lives in Dare County will be eligible to receive a meal at no cost from any of the following meal sites.  

Meals are safely packed for easy pickup at designated school locations. We will continue to provide meals at no cost to students enrolled in Dare County Schools during this time.  

Face to Face Learners

Dare County Schools will provide regular school meals to students (breakfast and lunch).  Meals will be provided at no cost to students.

Virtual Learners

Dare County Schools will provide breakfast and lunch to students enrolled in the Virtual School option.  School meals are at no cost to enrolled students.  Meals are unitized and packed for easy pickup at designated school locations. 

Parents will need to pre-order meals for the week prior to pick up.  Orders will be due on Thursdays for the following week.  

Pre-ordered meal picked days are Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 AM – 10:30 AM at the following locations:

  • Kitty Hawk Elementary office
  • Manteo Middle office
  • First Flight High School office
  • Cape Hatteras Secondary office 

Parents will need to enter the school building, sign-in, and pick up meals in the front office.  They will be asked their name and child's name.  

Dare County School Nutrition Services are committed to keep our children well-nourished during these difficult times.  

Contact School Nutrition Director, Kelleta Govan with questions and for more information.
