Drive-Through Food Service Program

 

Due to the recent announcement of an extended closure of Mooresville Schools, we will be offering a free drive-through meal program for all kids 18 and under, regardless of free or reduced meal status or school affiliation.  This program will be available Monday through Friday from 11:00am to 1:00pm at Mooresville High School door 29 and Neil Armstrong Elementary door 9.  Each child in the vehicle will receive 1 lunch meal and 1 breakfast meal for the following day.  This program will continue through Friday, May 22nd.  We will transition to our Drive-Through Summer Food Service Program on Tuesday, May 26th.  Click the link below to learn more about our locations and serving times.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  

Who funds these meals?  Mooresville Schools’ food service department sponsors and operates the feeding sites locally. We have applied for a waiver to operate the USDA summer food service program during an emergency closure.  We will receive reimbursedment from the USDA.

 

What are summer meals programs?  Summer meals programs are federal child nutrition programs funded by the USDA and designed to provide kids and teens ages 18 and under healthy meals  when school is out. 

 

What are the requirements for my child or teen to receive a meal? Do I have to fill out an application form? There is no application necessary to receive a meal and you do not have to show proof of income.
