Public Media Release

Summer Food Service Program

May 15, 2020

 

Greenville County Schools will be participating in the Seamless Summer Option beginning on June 8, 2020 through August 7, 2020. 

Nutritionally balanced meals will be provided to all children regardless of race, color, sex,   disability, age or national origin during summer vacation when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.  All children 18 years old and younger are eligible for meals at no charge and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.  The programs are only approved for geographical areas of need as determined by USDA. 

Due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, meals will be provided on a to-go basis only and will be served in the school’s student drop off line; there will be no need for parents to exit their vehicles to obtain the meals. USDA has provided flexibilities to allow the distribution of meals to adults to take home to children. Meals may be distributed 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 school identification card, school report card, child’s passport, birth certificate, government-issued child identification card, or any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record.
