New Hanover County Schools




Holiday Grab & Go Meal Service Changes


New Hanover County Schools will not provide meal service on November 25, 26, and 27 due to the Thanksgiving holiday. NHCS Child Nutrition will provide an extra breakfast for all curbside school locations and bus stop meal locations on Tuesday, November 24. Regular meal service will resume on Monday, November 30.

Parents or guardians of students who attend a non-CEP school can submit a Free & Reduced Meal Application if assistance is needed. While the Summer Food Service Program is currently providing free meals to all children 18 years of age and younger, the Free & Reduced Meal Program offers several other benefits including:
  • Qualify students for Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer
  • Impact the allotments of funds for certain programs and public school units
  • Waive the cost of ACT, SAT, AP and other tests
  • Provides discounts for college application process
  • Support funding or discounts for Internet access
  • Inform the agency for academic performance measures
