Emergency Meals-To-You Apply by May 4—Meals Delivered To Your Doorstep

April 28, 2020
Dear Transylvania County Schools Families,


Please pay attention to this message about a new program that will deliver meals to your doorstep for free. This program is called “Emergency Meals-to-You,” and it is a partnership between the US Department of Agriculture, Baylor University, and the Carolina Hunger Initiative at UNC. Your students enrolled at our district schools are eligible to participate.


After you sign up for Emergency Meals-to-You, you’ll get an Emergency Meals-to-You box delivered to your home for each child ages 1 through 18 in your household, every two weeks. Each box will include 10 breakfasts and 10 lunches—2 meals per day for each kid, for two weeks! All foods are shelf stable, which means they will last a long while. With Meals-to-You, kid-friendly meals are delivered—for FREE—directly to your door!

The boxes are packed for security, and because the food is shelf stable, you don’t have to refrigerate the foods immediately. If you are not able to receive your shipment on a given day, be sure to have a neighbor or family member get it. And receiving this benefit will NOT affect any other existing benefits.


HOW DO YOU SIGN UP? All you need to do is fill out an online sign-up form and submit it as soon as possible! The deadline for you to complete the form is Monday, May 4. Access the online form by clicking this link: https://NCmealstoyou.formstack.com/forms/apply


The enrollment process in North Carolina is being managed by the Carolina Hunger Initiative. Please find a list of Frequently Asked Questions about the Emergency Meals-to-You program here:

IMPORTANT:  By submitting your application, you will be giving your consent that your child’s free or reduced-price eligibility status, your school and your mailing address will be disclosed to and verified by Baylor and the Carolina Hunger Initiative, and will be used solely for the purpose of providing meals under the Meals-to-You program and for no other purpose.  This relationship is between the parent and the Meals-to-You program. 


Enrollment is only available for our district for ONE WEEK, so sign up online today! Remember to sign up by Monday, May 4. Let Emergency Meals-to-You help feed your children during the COVID-19 crisis.  If you have questions, please contact the Carolina Hunger Initiative at carolinahungerinitiative@unc.edu.


Thank you!
