USDA waiver extension allows for no-cost student meals through end of year

Dare County Schools issued information Tuesday stating it will continue to feed all students at no cost.

Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced in a Monday press conference that the United States Department of Agriculture will extend the waiver granted to North Carolina Public Schools to allow schools to continue participating in the Summer Nutrition Program through December 31.

“This means that every child 18 years or younger that lives in Dare County will be eligible to receive a meal at no cost from any of the following meal sites,” stated the DCS release.

Those eligible to receive a no-cost meal include children 18 years of age or younger and adults 18 years of age with disabilities who are enrolled in school programs.

Families are invited to stop by any listed DCS site during the scheduled meal hours and receive a free meal. No paperwork or proof of income will be required.

Meals may be picked up at the following sites on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week:

  • Cape Hatteras Elementary, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Manteo Elementary, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m.
