ECU Health Summer Meal Program now available at three additional locations

ECU Health has partnered with Food Lion Feeds, Sodexo, and the ECU Health Foundation to offer free meals to kids, teens, and people with disabilities through the Summer Meal Program. This initiative will provide meals in Greenville, Bethel, and Ahoskie, with the selected sites based on need, existing partnerships, and social vulnerability indices. During the school year, many students receive free or reduced meals, but when summer break begins, these vital meals are no longer available, putting families in a tough spot as they must choose between providing meals or other necessities like utilities and medical care. In North Carolina, over 57% of students receive free or reduced lunch, with higher percentages in Pitt and Hertford Counties.

In Greenville, meals will be available at English Chapel Free Will Baptist Church from June 10 to August 23, Monday to Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The site will be closed from July 22-26. In Ahoskie
