Summer Meal Program - Summertime brings a break from school... but the need for good nutrition doesn't take a break!

Learning does not end when school lets out. Neither does the need for good nutrition.

 

All kids under the age of 18 are eligible for FREE meals and adults may pick up meals for their children Monday through Friday, June 7th - August 11th.
 
We will be offering grab and go meals from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the following sites:
- Herb Watts Park (Livingston)
- Hillcrest Apartments
- Klondyke Apartments
- Pisgah View Apartments
 
We will also be offering drive-thru meal pick up at Asheville Primary School (441 Haywood Rd) and Montford North Star Academy (90 Montford Ave).
 
Meals will be served Monday through Friday 11:00 am - 1:00 pm and on Friday we’ll be offering meals for Saturday and Sunday as well.
 
We hope you’ll join us for some delicious free meals this summer!

Good nutrition is essential for learning in school. Continuing healthy eating habits is also important during the long hot summer months. Eating nutritious foods helps ensure students retain their hard learned knowledge… and to help them to keep right on learning throughout the summer. For many of these children, summer vacation can bring the temptation of eating empty calorie snacks and foods that are high in sugar, fats and sodium. And for many others, summer exposes students to an increased risk of hunger and developmental decline. Make seasonal fruits and vegetables a high priority for your snacks, meals and anytime.

Summertime is a time to play hard...but it is also a time to remember to eat right. Make sure good nutrition remains a priority all summer long, and students will return to school in the Fall healthy, sharp and ready to learn.
