Service will be available until schools reopen

Charleston County School District (CCSD) will offer a drive-thru meal service consisting of breakfast and lunch for CCSD students while schools are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

This service will be available Monday-Friday between 11 a.m.-1 p.m. until schools reopen. Food will be distributed at 15 schools including West Ashley Middle School, Ladson Elementary, Charleston County School of the Arts, and the Charleston Progressive Academy. Low-income students in all parts of the district often depend on schools to provide meals each day.

School cafeterias will not be open for on-site meal service.
