Meal Bundles

 

  • We want to make sure you know that from August 17th to August 31st, you can pick up breakfast and lunch daily from one of 40 schools (List of schools). The list of schools will also be posted on CMS’ website soon.
  • After those first two weeks, CMS will start it’s “CMS Eats at Home” program. Beginning September 1st, CMS will offer meal bundles of 5 breakfasts & 5 lunches for students.  These bundles can be picked up or delivered to your bus stop once a week.  

 

  • Starting August 11th, you would go to https://www.paypams.com to sign up to receive meal bundles of 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches for each of your students. Starting September 1st, the meal bundles will be available for pick up or delivery to your bus stop once each week based on your students’ an assigned schedule, but you will have to order in advance for either pick up or delivery. 

 

  • If you don’t already have a PayPams account it is easy to set one up – just follow the instructions on the site. It can also be done on your smartphone. 
  • Lots more information about this program, including cost and CEP and free & reduced eligibility, can be found on CMS’ website at www.cms.k12.nc.us – don’t forget to sign up for meals for your students!)
