Free Meals for ALL Students Extended to June 2022
All students in Spartanburg School District 7 will receive FREE breakfast and lunch every day through the end of the 2021-22 school year, thanks to nutrition waivers extended by the Biden-Harris Administration. School districts will be able to provide free meals for students through the 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.
Families that would typically qualify for free and reduced meals still need to still fill out a Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form each year. All students in a household are listed on one application. The information given will be used to determine or prove your children’s eligibility for P-EBT benefits if they are issued in South Carolina. Please complete the Free and Reduced Meal Price Online Application Form or a paper Free and Reduced Meal Price Application Form which is available at all schools. The paper forms, once completed, returned to any school office. You will be notified by mail of your child's status.
