This summer, CMS is planning on giving thousands of parents a bit of relief by providing free healthy meals to our Charlotte kids.
Over 50 school campuses around our city will start giving out the meals starting this week.
The new “Lunch Express” program is primarily targeted at assisting children in low-income areas during the summer when they’re out of school.
The new program is being primarily funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and managed by the NC Department of Public Instruction. All funds spent on the lunches by CMS will be reimbursed.
Here is the complete summer meals program schedule for CMS;
You can find out more about the program here on CMS’s website.
