Each week of the summer Berkeley County School District child nutrition workers are preparing approximately 12,000 meals. The meals are meant for children in need, and they're delivered by the same compassionate people who serve them during the school year.
The meals are made possible by the USDA's Summer Food Service Program, which was created to ensure children of low-income families don't go hungry when school is not in session.
While many schools serve cold lunches -- BCSD employees do all they can to prepare hot food they know the children will enjoy. In fact, they use the popularity of the school year's lunch menu as a guide.
