CNS is pleased to add another option for families who want to receive meals for their students/children, but for various reasons are unable to participate in the daily meal site.  Starting October 13th, we will be distributing 5-day meal bundles weekly on Tuesdays.  The kits must be pre-ordered and a distribution point selected.  We will have 10 distribution points, one in each attendance area.

meal bundle for child nutrition services, displays various foods and beverages available to CCS students

Cape Fear High
Douglas Byrd High
Gilmore Therapeutic Rec Center (Sanford Area)
Grays Creek High
Jack Britt High
Pine Forest High
Seventy-First High
Smith Rec Center  (EE Smith Area)

Westover Middle

We have a limited supply, so pre-orders are important.  More information is available at 5-Day Meal Bundles.   Mr. Whitley and the Communications Office are promoting the availability of this option to the parents and how they can order.  You are welcome to push it out to your parents through your channels if you would like.
Children are only allowed one breakfast and one lunch per day.  If they receive a 5-day meal bundle, they should not receive ready-to-eat meals for a meal site during the 5 days covered by the bundle.
