GCS Offers Free Meals to Students During Summer Months

The start of summer vacation is usually an exciting time for students, but for some it can also mean uncertainty about where they will get their next meal. To help support families over the summer, Guilford County Schools’ (GCS) School Nutrition Department will offer breakfast and lunch at 19 schools during the summer months through its Summer Nutrition Program.

Starting June 20, breakfast and lunch will be served to children 18 and under, at no cost. The meals are served Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. and from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The program runs through Aug. 17 at most locations.
