Elementary Montessori Bridging Ceremony 2019
  • Summer Meals Schedule
  • Free summer meals, funded by the USDA, are available to kids and teens ages 18 and younger at summer meal sites across Laurens County School District 55 (LCSD 55). For many kids, summertime means food, friends, and fun. For families who count on school breakfast and lunch, however, the summer months can be stressful as family food budgets expand. LCSD 55 is able to alleviate some of that stress through their summer meal program.

    In addition to the meals, many summer meal sites offer fun learning and recreational activities so kids and teens can eat a healthy meal while staying active and being with friends. Summer meal sites are registered with the USDA and are held at safe local places like schools, churches, and community centers. Meals will be served at 18 locations in Laurens County. If you or someone you know is interested, you may go to for a list of sites and times. The program will start Monday, June 10, 2019, and provide free breakfast and lunches until August 16, 2019.

    Free Summer Meal Program Details:
    • Meals are FREE to children and teens ages 18 and younger who come to a summer meal site.
    • Food served is healthy and follows USDA nutrition guidelines. Hot meals are served for breakfast and lunch.
    • No application or proof of income is needed. You can just bring your child to a summer meal site in your community.

    During the summer of 2018 Student Nutrition Services served 42,518 meals. This consisted of 17,436 breakfasts and 25, 082 lunches. Director of Student Nutrition Services Wanda Knight said “We are very grateful to have the opportunity to provide meals for so many of our community’s young people. The program has grown since its original implementation and we are proud of its success. The program also affords employment opportunities for many of our student nutrition professionals. As a result of having the summer meal program, approximately 50% of LCSD 55’s student nutrition staff is able to continue working during the months of June, July, and August.”
