Due to the impact of Hurricane Florence, the U.S. Department of Agriculture added Moore County Schools to the list of school districts that qualify for federal Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance, which includes offering meals to all students district wide at no charge.
Beginning October 1 through October 31, Moore County Schools will provide meals to all currently enrolled students at no charge.
Each student will be permitted one reimbursable breakfast and one reimbursable lunch per day during the month of October.
Reimbursable meals include an entree, vegetables and/or fruit and milk. Supplemental items such as cookies and chips are not included.
Nearby counties that also qualified for this program include Harnett, Hoke, Scotland, Richmond and Cumberland.
Beginning November 1, students will revert to the status for which they qualify. Applications for Free and Reduced Meals will continue to be processed as we receive them.
To prevent potential charges due to gaps in free and reduced benefits, please submit applications by October 17. Contact your child’s school for an application.
