Free Meals for Children 18 and Younger Open to Whole Community





The Learning Center Charter School is an official site for meals available at no charge to anyone in the community who is 18 years old and under.


As part of the Nutrition Program through the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, more than 900,000 North Carolina students rely on the nutritious meals and snacks provided through the School Breakfast, School Lunch, and Afterschool Meals Programs. The Learning Center is an official site for the 2021-22 school year as part of the state program.


Anyone 18 years or younger in the community can receive free breakfast and lunch by calling the school at 835-7240 so that the nutrition staff on campus plans accordingly and prepares enough food. Details of pick up times and procedures will be given at that time. If your student is enrolled for school at The Learning Center, there is no need to call.
