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.
CAN's Brick Community Center is located in the northwest corner of Brick Elementary School where the district administrative offices used to be, next door to the Lincoln Golden Ages senior center.
At this location, CAN operates an emergency food pantry, an After School Program, a 6-week Educational Summer Camp, and manages volunteers for Read to Succeed, an in-school literacy development program.
