NC Site Finder Map
The NC Site Finder Map is for families and the general public to find free nutritious meals for children in North Carolina. The map will be updated at least weekly during the traditional summer operating months (June - August).

Summer Nutrition Mapping Hub
The Summer Nutrition Mapping Hub webpage includes links to the NC Site Finder for families, as well as the NC Capacity Builder map. The NC Capacity Builder map is for current and potential Summer Nutrition Program sponsors to use to take a deep dive into where we are currently serving nutritious summer meals, and where there is room for growth.
