On March 14th of this year when Governor Cooper issued his Executive Order and closed North Carolina public schools statewide, the first challenge was how do we continue to offer this essential service and feed our students? This podcast is part of a series focused on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our food system. Today we're looking at how North Carolina's School Meal Programs have adapted during the pandemic and how some school children are continuing to get the nutrition that they need.

Join our coalition and support NC Farms for NC Kids as we promote NC-grown foods for our kids and give schools flexibility to provide meals to students who are unable to pay.
That keeps money in North Carolina, feeds our kids local food, and supports NC farmers.
Every Child. Every School. Every Day.
