Granville County Public Schools’ child nutrition staff have been working hard to provide meals to students during this difficult time. During the week of April 10 – 17, staff will not be working, so the community will be stepping in to provide some options for our hungry children.
Instead of the normal meal locations, there will be six sites open this week:
CG Credle Elementary School
The Oxford Housing Authority
Stovall Shaw Elementary School
The Highway 15 Trailer Park Neighborhood
Butner Stem Middle School
Mt Energy Elementary School
Volunteers will be on these sites between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. to distribute meals that have been generously donated by members of the community.
In addition, the owner of the Oxford and Butner McDonalds has also generously donated meal vouchers for children during this same time. These vouchers may be received at one of the six sites. Children must be present to receive these meals.
If you are interested in volunteering to help distribute meals during this time, please click here for more information. If you would like to make a monetary donation to support this effort, please visit the Union Bank branch in Oxford or Creedmoor. Just tell the drive-thru teller you’d like to make a donation to support the Community Children Meal Program.
The school district plans to resume our child meal services on Monday, April 20 with a modified schedule of three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday) as long as our staff can safely do so. We will provide updates for that program as needed.
We thank you all for your support of our children and the community. Together, we will get through these difficult times.
