About The United Way CHEW program.

The CHEW! Program assists children in our community by providing backpacks filled with child-friendly, easy to prepare meals over the weekend. Every week, volunteers from the community pack the backpacks, which are distributed to children on Friday and returned on Monday. Since it's creation, schools across Onslow County have been looking to replicate this successful model.

Twenty-four schools currently operate as a CHEW! site: Blue Creek Elementary, Clyde Erwin Elementary, Dixon Elementary, Dixon Middle, Dixon High, Meadowview Elementary, Morton Elementary, Northwoods Elementary, Northwoods Park Middle, Parkwood Elementary, Richlands Primary, Richlands Elementary, Southwest Elementary, Southwest Middle, State Side Elementary, Trexler Middle, Summersill Elementary, Jacksonville High School, Bell Fork Elementary, Hunters Creek Elementary, New Bridge Middle School, Jacksonville Commons Elementary, Jacksonville Commons Middle, and Richlands High.
