Cumberland County Schools' Child Nutrition Services logoIn the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, many Cumberland County residents continue to deal with personal loss and challenging conditions.  To assist in the recovery process, the USDA is providing assistance to 32 North Carolina counties, including the Cumberland County Schools’ Child Nutrition Services, impacted by a Major Disaster Declaration.

The benefits include offering meals to all students of the Cumberland County Schools at no charge through November 11, 2016. During this time, each student regardless of his/her approved meal status will be allowed one breakfast and one lunch per day at no charge.  All meals will continue to meet USDA guidelines. Additional items, including milk, may be purchased at the a la carte prices.

Starting November 14, 2016, student meals will return to regular pricing.  Parents/guardians who have not done so already, may submit an application for free or reduce priced meal benefits at any time throughout the school year.  Only one application is needed per household.

Easy access to nutritious school meals will help keep students well-nourished and ready to learn as our community continues to deal with the aftermath and recovery from Hurricane Matthew.
