Greenville County Schools To Provide Free Meals To All Students Through December 31

Greenville County Schools have been approved by the SC State Department of Education to provide free meals to all students through December 31, or until the congressional appropriated funding runs out.

This extension applies to all students attending school in-person and those attending the virtual program.

“This waiver extension also allows us to provide free meals to all children 18 years and younger in our community, even if they are not a Greenville County Schools student,” according to the release. “On Mondays from 4-5 p.m., Greenville County Schools will be providing free meals to children 18 years and younger from the 15 district locations currently providing meals to students attending the Virtual Program. Five days’ worth of breakfasts and lunches will be provided.”

Meals may be given to adults when children are not present if the adult is able to demonstrate proof of the child’s identity.

“Valid forms of identification may include, but are not limited to the GCS Backpack FANS Meal Card, school identification card, school report card, child’s passport, birth certificate, government-issued identification card, or any document providing parent/guardian identity and relationships to the child, such as an adoption decree, doctor, clinic, or hospital record, religious record, or daycare record,” according to the release.

The meals will be distributed at the 15 locations below:

  • AJ Whittenberg Elementary
  • Berea Elementary
  • Blue Ridge Middle
  • Bryson Middle
  • Fisher Middle
  • Fountain Inn Elementary
  • Greer Middle School
  • Grove Elementary
  • Mauldin Elementary
  • Northwest Middle
  • Northwood Middle
  • Sevier Middle
  • Sterling School
  • Sue Cleveland Elementary
  • Welcome Elementary

Please note that after Sept. 18, Greenville County Schools will no longer be able to offer students free after-school snacks as only two meals are allowed to be served and reimbursed under this summer program.
