Cherokee County Schools Provides Summer Meals to Children
herokee County Schools in cooperation with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are providing summer meals at no charge for children 18 years of age and younger. Children do not have to be students at a school within our system to participate in this program. The program is designed to assist families in providing meals to their children through the summer months when school is not in session. All meals must be eaten in the cafeteria during the times given, meals may not be removed from the eating area, and one meal may be served per child at no charge. These regulations are USDA requirements and must be followed in order for our system to participate in this program and to offer meals at no charge to anyone 18 and under. Adult visitors may purchase breakfast for $2.00 and lunch for $4.00. Acceptance and participation requirements are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. There will be no discrimination in the course of meal service.
Summer menus are posted at under “Calendars.” Please direct any questions you may have about the summer feeding program to Christina Lee, Child Nutrition Program Director for Cherokee County Schools. She may be reached at 256-927-3397 or at
