GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Guilford County School Nutrition program has launched mobile summer lunch sites in Greensboro and High Point.

Monday through Thursday, they have breakfast and lunch available at dozens of schools every summer, but this year they're also bringing meals to neighborhoods and parks.

They hope the program goes well this year so it can expand next year. So far the Greensboro sites are growing in participation. The High Point numbers are low at this point, so GCS is hoping to spread the word. The program launched a week ago.

Mobile sites in Greensboro:
10:35-11:05 a.m. Woodmere Park (2100 Autumn Drive)
12:20-12:55 p.m. Northeast Park by the pool (4010 High Rock Road)

Mobile sites in High Point:
11:35 a.m.-12:00 p.m. (1200 Leonard Ave.)
12:20-12:50 p.m. Park Terrace (885 Sharon Circle)
1:05-1:25 p.m. (306 Wise Avenue)

The food they bring has to be used within two hours or it must be tossed out, so they're encouraging everyone to stop by for a free lunch.

The program is federally funded by the USDA.

Davie County Schools also expanded its summer nutrition program this year. All of the Piedmont counties FOX8 checked offer free summer breakfast and lunch options, so check your school district's web page for locations and times.

There are no income requirements. The meals are for anyone 18 years old or younger.
