Beginning Wednesday, April 8, Johnston County Public Schools will temporarily suspend service at all 13 school food service sites and meal delivery locations.
The last day of service will be Tuesday, April 7. On this day, students will receive multi-day meal bags and information regarding food resources from other community partners.
School officials said the difficult decision was made to protect the health and safety of the students, their families and staff, and to provide the school nutrition department time to replenish supplies and train staff on additional safety protocols. After Spring Break which ends April 17, all factors will be reevaluated and meal services may resume, if feasible.
