 WCPSS Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students
 
 
Did you know through December 31, all Wake County children 18 and under may receive breakfast and lunch via Curbside Service at no cost? There are many pick up sites, one of which is Carpenter Elementary. All you do is drive up, hold up the number of meals you are picking up and lunch is brought to your car as well as breakfast for the next day. The Menu can be found HERE. This service is open to all families at no cost, however there is a way to donate to the program embedded in the link. Please check out this LINK to learn more information.
 

  


 We are grateful for the outreach from many of our parents and community members asking how they can help provide food for Wake County children and families in need.

We ask that you donate to WCPSS's food security efforts or one of our partner agencies: Inter-Faith Food Shuttle and Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC. If you would like to volunteer to support our work with food access and food security, please complete this form and we will contact you soon.
