‘Grab and Go’ meals available to students engaged in remote learning

Grab and Go Meals_Updated October 5  
The “grab and go” meal pickup is conducted in a drive-up format.  The meals are free for children ages 1-18 years, and children are not required to be present to receive a meal.  Students/parents may pick up a meal at the location that is most convenient for them. 

Students/parents should plan to take the meal with them as no place is available for eating on site.  For more information about the “grab and go” program, call (704) 836-9110.
