All Lexington District One students eligible for free meals

LEXINGTON, S.C. —Beginning Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2020, all Lexington County School District One students can receive free breakfast and lunch. The United States Department of Agriculture approved Lexington District One’s free food program for all students until December 31. 


All AA and BB students can receive free breakfast and lunch at school on their face-to-face days without completing any form or application. Students simply come to school and enjoy the meals.


But, AA and BB students who also want to take home meals for their e-learning days must complete a form provided by each school. 


For AA elementary students, parents must complete a home meal order form by 9 a.m. each Tuesday. 


For BB elementary students, parents must complete a home meal order form by 9 a.m. each Thursday. 


AA and BB middle and high school students will complete the form themselves. The schools will remind students to do this during each day’s morning announcements.


The district’s Online Learning Academy students can also receive free meals. Parents of Online Learning Academy students must complete the form linked here by 6 p.m. each Tuesday when it closes. The link reopens each Friday at 1 p.m for the following week’s meals. 


The district’s Online Learning Academy families can pick up meals each Friday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at any one of the district’s five designated drive-through locations (Carolina Springs Middle, Forts Pond Elementary, Gilbert Elementary, Oak Grove Elementary, White Knoll Elementary). Online Learning Academy parents must show their student’s school identification card to pick up meals.
