Guide: Charlotte Area Kids-Eat-Free Nights

School is back in session across the Charlotte area and, if you’re like us, the adjustment has been rough. Once all the carpools and pick-ups and after-school activities are done, there isn’t much time to make dinner for the fam.

For the nights when you didn’t make it to the store, forgot to turn on the crock pot in the morning or you’ve made it to 6 p.m. and you just. can’t. anymore., we put together a list of twelve of our favorite spots where you can feed the kiddos for free (and enjoy your dinner too).  Here they are, in order of days of the week:
