GCS Summer Meals Program Offers Free Breakfast and Lunch to Students

June 6, 2019 -- For the majority of June, July and August the Guilford County Schools Nutrition Department will offer breakfast and lunch at more than 20 school locations free of charge.

The Summer Meals Program ensures that even when students aren’t in school, they’re still able to be nourished.

These meals are open to children who are 18 and under and will be available Monday through Thursday every week.

The main dates of operation are June 13 through August 13, although a few locations do have slightly different schedules. You can view the full schedule here.

According to a 2015 study by the Southeastern University Consortium on Hunger, Poverty, and Nutrition shows nearly 20 percent of the entire Guilford County population suffers from food insecurity.
