    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. In cooperation with our food service management company, Southwestern Foodservice Excellence 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.

    • 2021 Summer Food Services in Rock Hill School District
      It’s that time of year again! The Rock Hill School District Food Services Department will be providing free meals to all school aged children this summer. We will have three designated meal pick up sites this year.

      • Ebenezer Elementary School
      • Sullivan Middle School
      • Castle Heights Middle School

        You can arrive to any location between 11:00 AM and 12:30 PM; no pre order is required. This is a drive through pick-up, so you won’t even have to get out of your car! One of our friendly food service staff members will greet you and ask how many children you need meals for and provide them to you within minutes. You will be able to receive a lunch for the current day and a breakfast for the following day for any school aged children in your household. If arriving without your student(s) please provide your name, the child’s name, and their age to the staff member providing your meal. This service starts on Monday June 28th and will end on Friday August 13th. The district is closed on July 5th for the 4th of July holiday and on Fridays.
