Free Meals for ALL Students Extended
All students in Spartanburg School District 7 will receive FREE breakfast and lunch every day through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, thanks to the extension by Congress of the Summer Food Service Program and Seamless Summer Option program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The district received initial approval from the South Carolina Department of Education the week of Sept 11, 2020 and began serving the free meals to students immediately. The free meals are available to all students regardless of whether they qualify for free or reduced meals.
Free meals are also available to students in the D7 Virtual School, who may pick up a seven-day breakfast and lunch meal kit each week. Virtual students must register for this service in order to receive meals (only one registration is needed per year - please register through this link). Virtual student meal kits are available for pickup each Thursday from 8 - 10 a.m. and from 4 - 5 p.m. at the location selected during registration (Carver Middle School and Drayton Mills Elementary - PLEASE NOTE Due to low turnout meal pickups, Cleveland Academy of Leadership and E.P. Todd School locations have been consolidiated to Carver Middle). We ask for your help in updating our list of students who wish to receive meal kits. If your family no longer intends to pick up meals, please let us know to unsubscribe you from the service by emailing Rene Cooksey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For families wanted to register, please do so by the Tuesday prior to pick up. For in-person students, District 7 will give additional meals that can be taken home for students to eat during the weekend. Weekend meals will be distributed during dismissal at each school every Friday. Parents can register their students here for weekend meals.
District 7 will not charge any student’s meal account as long as this program remains in effect. You can use this link to check the menu at your school.
