Lexington School District One alters free food program for children

Apr 28 2020

The Lexington County School District One free food program now offers two day a week pick up (Mondays and Wednesdays).

  • On Wednesdays, the district provides Wednesday’s lunch and breakfast and lunch for the following Thursday and Friday.
  • On Mondays, the district provides Monday’s lunch, breakfast and lunch for Tuesday, and breakfast for Wednesday.

The free food program for children will run through the remainder of the school year.

As a reminder, the program offers free food for children 18 years old and younger, as well as students with disabilities up to age 21.

Parents can pick up the meals, at any one of the seven schools designated as “grab and go” areas (Carolina Springs Middle, Forts Pond Elementary, Gilbert Primary, Oak Grove Elementary, Red Bank Elementary, Rosenwald Community Learning Center, White Knoll Elementary) or the areas designated as bus drop-offs. The seven school sites serve from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m. Check the list of bus drop-off points for times and locations here.

The parent/guardian can have the children in the car or, if they do not have the children, they will need to present some form of valid identification for each child. The child’s school identification card, passport, government-issued identification card, or even a homework assignment with the child’s name and school on it will suffice. The parent/guardian will also need to bring a form of identification that proves their relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree, birth certificate, daycare record, religious record, or even a doctor, clinic or hospital record.
