North Carolina Charter School Meal Service
Many North Carolinians are in need of free food due to school closures, loss of income, or other challenges caused by COVID-19. In response to this need, the NC Association for Public Charter Schools has developed two ways for residents to find free food:
- Student meal sites where any child can pick up free meals.
- Student meal delivery.
Find student meal sites using the map below.
