Lunch Program Expanded for Summer 2019

Kannapolis City Schools is expanding its free summer lunch program. The district not only will add more permanent feeding sites over the summer but also will introduce mobile meal locations for the first time. The mobile meal locations are a partnership with the Kannapolis Parks and Recreation Department, which will be operating mobile recreation sites at KCS schools during the summer.

Beginning Monday, June 24th, KCS will offer four permanent feeding locations throughout the community. The sites will be open Monday through Thursday each week (except for July 4th) and will provide free lunch meals to children. In addition, bag lunch meals will be served at three mobile locations, which will expand the reach of the free summer lunch program.

The four permanent summer lunch sites for 2019 will provide a free meal to anyone 18 years of age or younger (even children that do not attend Kannapolis City Schools). Adults 19 and older will be able to purchase meals. 

The four permanent summer feeding sites are G.W. Carver Elementary School, A.L. Brown High School, New Hope Lutheran Church, and the Kannapolis branch of the YMCA. The address and lunch times for each location are listed below.
