Student Meal Program

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 2020-21 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.
