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 Newby Elementary and Neil Armstrong Elementary beginning on Monday, March 16th and ending on Thursday, March 26th. Each child in the vehicle will receive 1 lunch meal and 1 breakfast meal for the following day. This program will resume Monday through Friday beginning Monday, April 6th and continuing until further notice.
On Friday March 27th we will be having a 5 day breakfast and lunch meal package distribution. Pick up of the meal packages will be at Neil Armstrong Elementary and Newby Elementary from 11:00am to 1:00pm. Each child in the vehicle will receive 5 lunch meals and 5 breakfast meals to help bridge the gap while we are off for Spring Break.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
