Brick Elementary is a Title I public school in the Lincoln Consolidated school district in Ypsilanti.


Due to the number of students that qualify for free and reduced lunch, Brick began providing free breakfast and lunch to all students enrolled at the elementary school in the 2019-20 school year.


At this location, CAN operates an emergency food pantry, After School Programs, a 6-week Educational Summer Camp program, and manages volunteers for Read to Succeed, an in-school literacy development program.
