While thousands of local school children are still relishing the first weeks of summer fun, many across Charleston County are feeling the first pangs of it — hunger pangs, that is. According to CCSD, 25,000 Charleston County children live in households where food is hard to come by. And the lack of nutrition for those kids and teens only gets worse over the summer.
Thankfully, CCSD has a program to bridge the gap until August when class is back in session and meals are available. The Seamless Summer Food Program offers free breakfast and lunch at 100 different sites such as churches, schools, and community centers throughout the county. And they’re open now through Fri. Aug. 5.
All a child 18 an under must do to get a meal is simply walk in to one of these sites.
