The national school breakfast and lunch program starting September 2 requires that students be identified before receiving meals. The Sumter School District will issue a meal card to each student who receives weekly meals. Please note that only students in the Sumter School District will be able to obtain meals under the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) at no cost.
Parents can register their children in any of the following ways: fill out the Google form at https://bit.ly/32n9Q5j, register at one of the meal distribution sites on September 2 when meals are picked up or call (803) 499-5950, extension 107 or 108.
New cards will be distributed to students / parents / guardians every Wednesday at the selected bus stop or designated school according to the registration form.
If students / parents / guardians do not have their meal cards when they arrive to pick up meals, the designated food service employee on the bus or at the school site will ask for the student’s name , school and lunch number. After verifying the student’s information, the student will be authorized to receive meals.
