Lexington County School District Three has initiated its Student Feeding Program.

A few things to remember:

• The feeding program is free to all children under the age of 18.

• Children MUST be present in order to receive a bagged meal

• Children will receive two bagged meals at a time (one breakfast and one lunch).

• The feeding program will only serve children on weekdays.

The feeding program will run through at least March 31st. Lexington Three will disperse meals to children via a bus route with designated stops and through a drive-through line at Batesburg-Leesville Elementary School.

Bus Route Information:

A bus carrying bagged meals will make three stops each weekday at several points within the district’s lines in an effort to make food pick-up more accessible for families.

Out of consideration for everyone’s health and well-being, we ask that only one family at a time approach the bus.

Please see the bus schedule below for meal pick-up locations and times. 11:00 am until 11:30 am

• 11:00 am until 11:30 am - Mr. B's Convenience Store near Leesville Gardens (402 East Columbia Avenue, Leesville)

• 11:45 am until 12:15 pm - Empty Parking Lot Behind McDonald's (212 West Columbia Avenue, Batesburg)

• 12:30 pm until 1:15 pm - Old Hardee’s Parking Lot (502 West Columbia Avenue, Batesburg)

Families can also pick-up food at Batesburg-Leesville Elementary School between 11:30 am and 1:30 pm starting on Tuesday, March 17th.

The address for Batesburg-Leesville Elementary School is: 403 South Lee Street Leesville, SC.

Staff members will be passing out the bagged meals in a drive-through format at the front of the school.

Please remember that children still need to be present in order to receive a bagged meal.

Families are asked to please not exit their cars out of consideration of everyone’s health and well-being.
