Two sites were added during the first week (Baptist Hill Middle High School and Jane Edwards Elementary School). 

It kicked off the morning of Monday, March 16, 2020, with great success.

Walter Campbell, Executive Director of Nutrition Services said it is a pleasure to serve the students and community.

“I would love to thank the incredible team I get to work with every day, who truly keep students at the heart of their work,” said Campbell. “They make it look effortless, when we know there is a lot of hard work and extremely early mornings going on behind the scenes.” 

The following sites have been designated for meal distribution between the hours of 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Monday-Friday unless otherwise noted:

With school districts around the country closing their campuses to prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Charleston County School District will offer a drive-thru, “Grab & Go” style Meal Service at the above-named area sites for each day the school district is closed.  

Students 18 years or younger will be provided lunch and breakfast for the following day. 

Students from neighboring districts are eligible to participate in the meal service offered at the Charleston County School’s locations.  

“The smiles and thank you's from parents and students today make it well worth it,” said Campbell.

Distribution of meals will be stationed at the sites designated for drive-up or walk-up pick up only. Cafeterias will not be open for on-site meal service, and children must be present when the meals are picked up.   

Meals may include perishable components and will be stored in temperature-controlled environments prior to distribution. For more information on the offerings for Breakfast and Lunch please visit the Nutrition Services website.
