Our mission is to provide all Richland Two students with high quality, nutritionally balanced, nourishing meals that are thoughtfully sourced and made with love. We do this to fuel students’ learning, build lifelong habits of health, and strengthen our community.
With our partner Sodexo, we provide provide more than 2.6 million student lunches and 1.1 million student breakfasts each year at our 40 schools and centers.
It's very important for parents and guardians to fill out the free-and-reduced meal application each year
Richland Two uses the information from the Free and Reduced Meal application to get a sense of our community's needs and so we can maximize federal reimbursements. Completing the application will also make sure our school district gets the right amount of federal education funding. The family income data not only helps us receive school meal reimbursements, but also funding for Title I programs, funding and resources for after-school programs, funding provided to schools from the South Carolina Legislature for essential programs and services.
