Guilford County Schools continues mobile meal deliveries

According to GCS, meals will be available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to noon at all school sites.

GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Guilford County Schools announced Monday it will continue to provide student meals at mobile meal locations amid COVID-19.

“GCS families can breathe a little easier, now that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended waivers granting districts flexibility in how schools distribute and pay for student meals,” GCS said in a press release.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Monday districts may continue to operate under the summer nutrition guidelines through Dec. 31, which will allow GCS to serve meals to all students without charge.

“This makes it easier for families to access the food their children need but it does not bring a resolution to the larger issue of meal participation,” GCS said. “Revenue shortfalls to cover fixed costs also need to be addressed.

According to GCS, meals will be available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to noon at all school sites.

The school system said families can visit any school to pick up the meals, which include breakfast and lunch.

“This is a victory for our schools and for our families, and I am grateful to those who advocated so that GCS and other districts across the country could continue to feed children,” said superintendent Dr. Sharon Contreras.
