Lexington-Richland School District Five to offer Summer Food Service Program in June

Irmo, SC – Lexington-Richland School District Five will offer its Summer Food Service Program again this year. Last summer, District Five served over 51,000 meals. These meals typically are provided to families who struggle to provide balanced meals to their children in the summer months. District Five’s Director of Student Nutrition, Todd Bedenbaugh simply stated, “Poverty does not take a break in the summer and neither do we.”

This program begins June 5 and will run through August 4. Meals will not be offered on Fridays or on July 3rd and 4th. All children ages two through 18 are eligible for this service. Meals will be provided to all children with no charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Meals will be provided on a first come, first serve basis.
