General Information

  • Who We Are

    Good nutrition goes hand-in-hand with education. The Dorchester District Two Food Service program is partnered with Sodexo School Services and currently provides more than 2 million student lunches and nearly 1 million student breakfasts each year. Dorchester District Two consists of more than 26,000 students attending 25 schools: 15 elementary schools, six middle schools, three high schools, one alternative school, and an adult education building. Our schools provide wholesome breakfast and lunch programs, which benefit our students’ academic performance as well as their physical and mental wellbeing, which in turn creates more engaged schools and improves the community at large.

    What We Do

    Our mission is to provide a high quality, nutritionally sound food service program which supports life-long student learning. All district schools serve a nutritious breakfast and lunch every day. All meals served meet nutritional standards established by federal (U.S. Department of Agriculture) and state (South Carolina Department of Education) guidelines. In addition to serving nutritious meals we aim to cultivate a culture of health & wellness amongst our student body by implementing various wellness initiatives. We are committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience. Our partnership with the MUSC Boeing Center for Children’s Wellness helps support these efforts.
