What is Super Summer Meals?

Buncombe County Schools is one of 12 out of the state’s 115 school districts to serve as a pilot for expanding summer meals. The pilot program is a collaboration between Buncombe County Schools, Buncombe County Parks, Greenways & Recreation, No Kid Hungry NC, the NC Department of Public Instruction, and the NC Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Public Health.

The US Department of Agriculture has granted a special waiver to the pilot participants that allow them to waive some of the administrative requirements and receive the highest reimbursement rates for meals served. Buncombe County Schools is receiving a mini-grant from No Kid Hungry to help defray operational expenses.
