School Lunch and Breakfast Program

Camden Elementary’s cafeteria provides nourishing and well-balanced meals for students, visitors and staff.  While students are encouraged to eat the school lunch provided, they may also bring lunches from home.  Glass containers, candy, and sodas are discouraged.  Breakfast and lunch will be free this year. 

Breakfast is served in the classroom/hallway from 7:00 to 7:30 each morning.  If we have late buses, we will keep the cafeteria open until all children have been served.  Children pick up their breakfast as they arrive at school and will eat their breakfast in the classroom or in the hallway.  We ask that children do not bring fast-food breakfasts to school.  

Lunch Applications/ Lunch Accounts

All students in Kershaw County School District will receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2023-2024 school year as part of the Community Eligibility Provision program.

The Community Eligibility Provision, a key allocation of The Healthy, Hungry-Free Kids Act of 2010, eliminates the requirement for parents/guardians to fill out Free and Reduced Meal applications for the upcoming school year.

Next year, families that would like to add money to their child's meal account for the purchase of additional food items during the school year can do so using or by sending payment to the school.
