Would you like to become a Site for free meals?
A summer meal site is a location at which free meals are served to children 18 years old and under.  Sites can come in all shapes and sizes and can be located almost anywhere, as long as they comply with federal eligibility standards.  Meal sites may be in a variety of settings, such as:

Schools
Day Camps
Recreation Centers
Residential Summer Camps
Community Centers
Housing Authorities
Churches
And more!

SFSP sites are responsible for:
Attending a training session provided by CNS (approx.. 2 hrs)
Supervising meals service at your site
Distributing meals (prepared by CNS) while following state and federal guidelines
Keeping daily records of meals served
Storing food appropriately
Keeping the site clean and sanitary
Promoting the program in your community

All organizations or entities interested in becoming a SFSP site should contact CNS by email at summermeals@ccs.k12.nc.us or call 910.678.2502.
