Summer Meals

Summer MealsStudents may not be in school during the summer months, but they still need healthy and consistent meals! For a variety of reasons, the reality is that many WNC kids are not always getting the meals they require outside of their school's care and a hungry child cannot thrive. This is why volunteers with the Buncombe County Schools summer meals service are helping to meet this need by bringing meals to the area children who need them.

"Our belief is that no child should be hungry in our community," said School Nutrition Supervisor Sheryl Harris. "The purpose of the summer feeding program is to fill the gap in between school sessions where all children can thrive and succeed. Hunger should not be the obstacle that inhibits their growth as individuals in anyway during their formative years."
Upon the completion of the Summer Food Service Program in the summer of 2018, there were 88,695 meals served to children in our community from Buncombe County Schools. We formed an alliance with Asheville City Schools and the YMCA of WNC last year to reach even more children throughout the county under our hash tag #feedingbuncombekids.

Buncombe County Schools Nutrition is a proud recipient of the USDA Gold Standard "Turnip the Beet Award" for the summers of 2017 and 2018. We aim to offer a variety of activities at our different sites to go along with the meals at no charge to create a day camp atmosphere. Please see below to find out where our locations and serving times will be throughout the summer months.
