Thank you for visiting our Sumter School District Food and Nutrition Services page. Our district participates in the Community Eligibility Provision which provides free breakfast and lunch to all Sumter School District students. We do not have a charge policy since we offer free meals to the students. If a student wishes to purchase any special sales items or a second meal, they must have money to pay for it. The cost for adult breakfast is $2.50 and adult lunch is $4.00. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at 803-499-5950. Sumter School District is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
National School Breakfast week is March 4th – 8th. In our district we promote National School Breakfast for the whole month of March. We give each school the opportunity to pick one day during March to promote their breakfast program. The theme for this year is “Start Your Engines With School Breakfast” Below is a link to a breakfast video that USDA created. It is a little over a minute long.
