WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The summertime often means fun, food, and sun for most students, however, for families who depend on school breakfast and lunch, it can be pretty stressful.  That's why summer meal programs provided by Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools (WSFCS), Asheboro City Schools, and Guilford County Schools are so important! 

The programs cater to kids and teens ages 18 and younger with various food sites across the Triad. There is no paperwork to fill out in order to receive the food. You simply just have to visit one of the sites Monday - Thursday during mealtime and children, teens can enjoy meals free of charge.
