NC Restaurants Feeding Kids Initiative Announcement

— Written By

Image of girl smilingAre you a restaurant, catering company or foodservice operation interested in helping feed kids in need during COVID-19 school closures? Nearly 900,000 children in North Carolina rely on receiving breakfast, lunch, and snacks from school five days a week. During this emergency closure, approved schools and community partners are serving needy kids and teens across the state and receiving reimbursement through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP). Some schools and community partners operating through SFSP may experience difficulties with food supply and meal transportation. This is where you can step in! SFSP operators are allowed to contract with restaurants, caterers and foodservice operations to supply food for the kids in their community.

The NC Department of Public Instruction is leading the NC Restaurants Feeding Kids Initiative to connect restaurants and foodservice operations with schools and community organizations to ensure no child goes hungry while school is out of session. Join a Zoom call on Friday, April 3, 2020, at 10:30 a.m. to find out how you can help. Connect via web (Meeting ID: 314 926 078) or by phone at 1-646-558-8656, Access Code 314926078#.
