Families completing a free/reduced meal application for a child attending a non-CEP school and a CEP School will need to include information on their children attending the CEP school on the application as a family member if this applies.

All families at NON-CEP schools must complete a new Free and Reduced Meals Application to determine if your student qualifies for these benefits. Please note that all children starting kindergarten are considered full pay.

Families may apply online starting August 1st, 2023

The Charleston County School District Nutrition Services is here to assist all families during this transition. If you need any assistance or have any questions, please call 843-746-1375.


El Distrito Escolar del Condado de Charleston (CCSD) está participando con el Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) para el año escolar 2023 -2024 que proporciona una alternativa a las solicitudes del hogar para comidas gratuitas y de precio reducido en las escuelas con niveles mayores de alumnos de bajos ingresos. 

Todos los alumnos inscritos en estas escuelas selectas pueden participar en el programa de desayuno y almuerzo sin costo a las familias, cada día del año escolar de 2023 – 2024. Las familias no tendrán que llenar solicitudes para comidas. Las escuelas eligibles para participar en el CEP se pueden encontrar aquí

Los alumnos que no asisten a una escuela CEP se requerirán completar una solicitud de las Comidas Escolares Gratuitas y de Precio Reducido en línea en www.linqconnect.com para saber si su alumno califica para un almuerzo gratuito o de precio reducido. Solicitudes en forma de papel se pueden obtener en cada escuela CCSD si se necesita. Al momento que el Departamento de Servicios de Nutrición reciba una solicitud, espere hasta 10 días para que se procese (solicitudes en línea se procesan más rápido que las solicitudes de papel.)

Los precios para el desayuno y almuerzo para los alumnos serán los siguientes para el año escolar 2023 - 2024:

Precios del Desayuno

Precio Completo, Alumno - $ 1.50

Precio Reducido, Alumno - $ 0.30

Precios del Almuerzo

Precio Completo, Alumno - $ 2.75

Precio Reducido, Alumno - $ 0.40
