KCSD to deliver student meals along bus routes
March 17, 2020
Starting Wednesday, March 18, the Kershaw County School District will deliver free meals to students along its bus routes.
“We’ve been working on a way to increase access to these meals for our students,” said KCSD Superintendent Shane Robbins. “Our food service staff and bus transportation employees have worked hard to put this together.”
Robbins said that lunch as well as breakfast for the following day will be delivered together at normal bus stops. Buses will leave the four pick up food sites—Bethune Elementary, Blaney Elementary, Camden High and North Central Middle--between 9:30 and 10 a.m. on weekdays.
“This is new for all of us so we appreciate families’ patience,” the superintendent said. “Families can count on the bus coming to their students’ bus stops about four hours later than normal.”
KCSD will continue to operate the food “grab and go” meal sites. Pick up will be along the bus rider line at each school with breakfast available from 7 to 9 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Robbins said that the meals on the bus and at the food sites are available to all children age 18 and younger. Students do not have to be bus riders and their meal status during the year does not apply. Students must be present at the food site or at the bus stop.
KCSD to offer free breakfasts, lunches at pick up locations starting Monday
March 14, 2020
The Kershaw County School District (KCSD) will continue to feed students during the district’s two-week closure. Breakfasts and lunches will be served on weekdays starting Monday at drive through pick up locations at Bethune Elementary, Blaney Elementary, Camden High and North Central Middle.
“We don’t want the fact that our schools are closed to mean that our students lose access to their school breakfast and lunch meals,” said KCSD Superintendent Shane Robbins. “Misha Lawyer and our food service department have worked quickly with the State Department of Education to set this up so there is no break in service for our students.”
Robbins said that children age 18 and younger may receive a free meal regardless of their meal status during the school year. Pick up will be along the bus rider line at each school with breakfast available from 7 to 9 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Students must be present at the time of pick up. All food is grab and go; nothing will be consumed on site. No one will be allowed in the school buildings.
Robbins said that the district greatly appreciates the offers of volunteer help with this program but KCSD is working to avoid large group gatherings and assist with social distancing in this effort. He said that the district has help covered with food service employees.
Breakfast items will vary and may include cereal with milk, fruit, Fruit Frudels, whole grain Pop Tarts, cereal bars, milk and juice. Lunches will be sandwiches, chips, fruit, fresh vegetables and milk.
KCSD is looking at ways going forward that breakfast and lunch can be served at the same time while ensuring food safety.
