Horry County Schools offer free breakfast and lunch to all students for the 2023-2024 school year. This is through the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) program, which is a non-pricing meal service option for qualifying schools and school districts. CEP allows breakfast and lunch to be offered to all enrolled students at no cost.
To qualify for the CEP program, a school district must have a high percentage of students who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. In South Carolina, the percentage is 40%. Horry County Schools meets this requirement, so all students in the district will be able to get free breakfast and lunch this school year.
Parents/guardians do not need to fill out a Free and Reduced Meal application for their children to participate in the CEP program. However, if you would like to apply for free or reduced-price meals, you can do so online at www.myschoolbucks.com.
