No-cost summer meals for kids and teens provided by Charleston County School District

As part of its efforts to ensure kids have access to breakfast and lunch meals during the summer months, Charleston County School District (CCSD) is pleased to announce that 36 summer “open” sites will be serving summer meals to kids and teens. All kids and teens 18 and under can receive these meals free of charge. No registration is required. CCSD’s Summer Meals Program will operate Monday through Friday until August 5, 2022.

The summer months are one of the hungriest times of year for many kids. The need will be even greater this summer as the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic and its continued impacts.

“Inflation is at an all-time, including the soaring prices of food, with no end in sight,” said Jeremy Tunstill, CCSD’s summer meals program coordinator. “Many families will struggle to put food on the table. I believe that our summer meals program can help these families in some small way.”
