    The mission of the Rock Hill Schools Food Service Department is to provide high quality, nutritionally sound food service programs that support student learning, health, and development.  (View Rock Hill School District Three of York County Board Policy ADF - District Wellness)  In cooperation with our food service management company, all schools serve a nutritious breakfast and lunch every day.  All meals served meet nutritional standards established by federal (U.S. Department of Agriculture) and state (South Carolina Department of Education) regulations.



    Rock Hill Schools is excited to announce that we will again have summer breakfast and lunch meal programs this year. These meals are offered for FREE for all school-aged children. This year we will offer this program at Castle Heights Middle School, Northside Elementary School, and Sunset Park Elementary School. In order to receive your free meal, all you have to do is bring your school-year-aged child to one of these locations between 8:00AM and 9:00 AM for breakfast and 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM for lunch. Once you arrive at the school, follow the signs to where the meals will be available.  Children would eat their meals in the cafeteria where the meal was received. Meals will be offered Monday- Thursday starting on 6/5/2023 and the program will run until 8/3/2023. Meals will not be available on the following dates as the district will be closed, 7/3/2023 and 7/4/2023.
