Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will once again offer free summer meals at select schools and mobile sites beginning June 20.

The meals are available to anyone 18 and younger at sites throughout the community. There is no paperwork to fill out. Those who are eligible can visit one of the sites during mealtime and receive a fresh, nutritious, delicious meal for free.

For many kids, summertime means food, friends and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful and family food budgets have to be stretched even further.

Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or  disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Locations, dates, and times are below.
