Cabarrus County Schools
offers free meals for children within the local community each summer, and this summer is no exception.
This year's program began June 18th and goes through August 17th. Every child age 18 and younger is eligible.
Carrie Bostic, Assistant Director who oversees the Summer Program, told us that around 1,000 children are served through this program per day. Since its creation, the CCS has added three bus routes that go out into the more underserved areas to serve children.
To benefit from this program, no identification or reservations are required. All someone needs to do is show up to the approved sites during meal times (listed below).
Select sites throughout the community also are offering free breakfasts for qualified participants.
Bostic noted the positive effect this program has on children in the area, stating that her favorite moment is, "Watching the kids running to the bus for food like it is the ice cream truck!"
