If a family’s financial situation changes at any time, an application may also be submitted during the school year. Beginning August 10, 2015, Applicants may check the eligibility of their application online by using the link above or going to www.schoollunchstatus.com and print the approval letter.  Click here for more information on SchoolLunchStatus.com.  Eligibility letters will only be mailed if a request is made to the Student Nutrition Services office.  Please call 864-397-1166.
Only one completed application listing all family members is needed to determine the meal status for all students in the family. For school officials to determine eligibility the household must provide the following information on the application:
(1) A food stamp or TANF case number certifying the household is currently eligible for either of these assistance programs and an adult household member signature or (2) names of all household members, the name and social security number of the adult household member signing the application form, current income by source for each household member and a signature of an adult household member certifying that the information provided is correct.
