Student Food ServiceDARLINGTON, S.C. – Beginning Monday, March 23, the Darlington County School District (DCSD) will shift its “grab-and-go” food program for students to twice a week, while still providing a full week’s worth of nutritional breakfast and lunch meals. The meals are available for pickup at locations across the county.

Any child who is 18 years old or younger can get drive-thru, “grab-and-go” meal bags at more than 30 locations on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. On Monday, students will receive food for Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, students will receive food for the remainder of the week (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday).

The child or children must be present at the time of pick up. The meal bags will contain breakfast, lunch and a snack, so only one trip needs to be made each day.

The following schools will be open for drive-thru pick up on Mondays and Wednesdays:

Darlington Middle School
