41 CCSD schools to provide free breakfast, lunch to students


The Charleston County School District has announced that 41 schools will be offering free breakfast and lunch to all students for the 2015-2016 school year. 

CCSD officials say the free meals are thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision which is part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program through the US Department of Agriculture. 

"The CEP enables low-income area schools to increase their access to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) as a community, as opposed to using individual income data, while greatly reducing the administrative burden of NSLP and SBP participation (i.e. processing annual applications and conducting verification)," stated a press release by the Office of Nutrition Services.
