The Wake County Public School System has worked with community groups to set up sites where students can pick up free meals to eat while schools are closed due to the coronavirus threat.
The majority of sites are for all children aged 18 and under but some food distribution sites are available for anyone. You will not be required to show ID and children do not have to be present with you to pick up food.
