  • Free Meal Locations - Alexander County

    The school system established a “grab & go” style student meal encouraging those picking up the meals to remain at the pick-up table to reduce the potential transmission of the coronavirus. Any child 18 years old or younger will be eligible for meals. Unlike the summer feeding program, the federal government provided a waiver that allows parents to pick up the meals to take home to their children. Read more by clicking the heading above.
