(3/12/20) -- The Pickens County School District is pleased to announce that meals will be available for all children in the community age 18 and under.

Although Pickens County School District has a free and reduced lunch rate of approximately 50%, the "Grab and Go" meals are provided FREE of charge to all Pickens County children age 18 and under.

We will be providing meals as specified in the chart. Meals can be picked up between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. In addition to our school locations, meals will be available in the parking lot of IGA in Marble Hill, Hinton Milling, City of Talking Rock (across from City Hall), and Mountainside Manor apartments. There will be a school bus at each of these locations with the meals. As a convenience to families, you may pick-up meals at any location regardless of where you live within the county.

Please note, children must be present to collect the meal. We will provide lunch along with a breakfast meal for the following morning.

We look forward to serving our students throughout this two-week period. Great school nutrition fuels the brain for learning! Let us help you keep the learning momentum going by enjoying one of our “Grab and Go” meals.
