WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (WIS) - Lexington School District Two will provide free meal bundles for any child 18 and younger during the summer.

The meal bundles will include breakfast and lunch for part of the week (more details below). They will be available for pick up at distribution sites and will also be handed out by bus delivery.

Children do not need to be Lexington Two students to get the meals.

If a student is not available to pick up a meal, an adult should have the child’s Lexington Two identification number or, for those not enrolled at Lexington Two, a form of ID for the child (such as a birth certificate or report card).

Distribution begins the week of June 21 and goes through August 12.

Below are the options for picking up meals. Any changes will be announced through Lexington Two websites, social media and the district’s phone system.
