Greenville County Schools has been granted permission to provide two meals at one time (lunch and tomorrow’s breakfast), which eliminates the need for multiple pick up times each day. GCS is also using buses to deliver meals to various locations in addition to the 15 school sites we are currently utilizing. Meals are available for pick up from 10 a.m. – noon, for everyone 18 years of age and younger (and special needs adults up to age 21).
Beginning Tuesday, March 31, a new USDA waiver enables us to allow adults to pick up meals for a child even if the child is not present, as long as the adult can demonstrate proof of the child’s identity. This has been an issue for families where a child is sick or immune-compromised, or not all the children can fit in one vehicle, for example. GCS personnel will review documentation to the best of their ability while maintaining appropriate distance and without physical handling.
Accepted forms of identification include, but are not limited to:
- school identification card
- school report card
- Parent Backpack access
- child’s passport
- birth certificate
- government-issued child identification card
- any document proving parent/guardian identity and relationship to the child, such as an adoption decree; doctor, clinic, or hospital record; religious record; or daycare center record
