HAMLET — On Monday, Aug. 31, Richmond County Schools received a waiver from the United States Department of Agriculture and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction that allows us to use the Summer School Food Service Program to continue serving our students during this pandemic, through Dec. 30, 2020.


This allows all children in Richmond County from age 0 through 18 years of age to eat at no charge.

Meals will be delivered daily using our yellow school buses. A student number will not be required to receive the meals. If you would like meals delivered to your home, please call Debbie Blake at the bus garage at 910-997-9841 to be placed on the drop-off route.

You may also pick up meals curbside at the following sites from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.: Hamlet Middle, Cordova Middle, Ninth Grade Academy and Ellerbe Middle.

As always, we are here to serve your child nutritious and healthy meals.
