Any students under the age of 18 can receive a meal at no cost at any meal service location regardless of whether they attend Johnston County Public Schools. A parent or household member can come from the household to pick up the student meals.
Please know that JCPS has to follow the state and federal guidelines surrounding School Nutrition programs in determining which sites are open based upon eligibility factors in areas of the school district. At this time, the district is unable to resume the food delivery services that were previously offered.
Below are a list of our community partners and other meal service resources for families to utilize during this time:
- Johnston County Area Food Pantry Programs
- Online Resources and Additional Meal Service Programs
- Families can visit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC to find food pantries near where they live. Visit their website to enter an address or zip code in your area. Please call and cofirm any location before visiting as their hours may have had to change as a result of COVID-19.
- Parents who need food assistance for their children can text FOODNC to 877-877 to locate nearby free meal sites. The texting service is also available in Spanish by texting COMIDA to 877-877. After entering their address, parents will receive a text with the location and serving times for nearby pick-up and drive-thru free meal sites while schools are closed. Sites have been set up across the state for families with children ages 18 and younger, including preschool children, who rely on free and reduced-price meals at school.
