Common Questions and answers
We understand many parents may not be aware of the changes within our school nutrition system throughout North Carolina. We have answers to commonly asked questions.
- What is the change?
- Usually during school, food authorities operate under the federal NSLP (National School Lunch Program) and NSBP (National School Breakfast Program). Because of unexpected school closures, North Carolina began to operate under the SSO (Seamless Summer Option) to feed students. This program was designed to provide meals to low income students during emergency circumstances.
- Do we have to come to the school to get meals?
- Yes, for now meals will only be served at the main campus and high school locations. There are Phase 2 plans for mobile sites, but we must make sure we have adequate staffing for consistency. Mobile sites cannot be developed until all meal cards have been distributed to students.
- Can anyone come to the school for meals?
- From August 17th, 2020 to December 31st, 2020 any child enrolled in a school in need of meals can come through the drive through for a hot lunch and shelf stable breakfast.
- What are the hours?
- Hours for meals are 11am to 1pm Monday through Thursday. Monday through Wednesday students will receive a hot lunch and a breakfast. On Thursday students will receive a hot lunch, 3 bagged lunches and 4 breakfast for meals on the weekend. There will be no meal service on Fridays.
- What’s a meal card?
- The meal cards are a way to identify your child for accountability. The meal cards are wallet size, include your child’s name, serving number and a bar code to be scanned.
- Where do I get meal cards?
- Meal cards will be given out during meal service at your child’s enrolled schools from August 17th, 2020 to August 31st, 2020. From September 1st, 2020 meal cards will be available in the office at our main campus.
- What if I have more questions?
- If you have any questions about our meal service program, please contact Ms. Maddox at (704) 509-5470. She will gladly answer any questions about our plans to continuously feed our student throughout this pandemic.
