Most schools have now finished up for the year, but CMS is planning to help kids throughout the summer.
It's heartbreaking that so many children in our community go hungry. I love that these programs exists.
The Summer Food Service Program includes over 50 different schools across the community. Meals will be served twice a day to kids aged 1-18. In addition to the Food Service Program, the school district will also be offering the CMS Lunch Express. It's a mobile service offering meals at different locations around Charlotte between June and August.
Both of these programs will offer young people meals each weekday in convenient locations around the community.
You can get more details on the story here. And if you know of any other programs, please let me know! I'd love to help spread the word.
