Lexington Three Food Services
Department To Receive
$148,500 Grant From USDA

Lexington County School District Three’s Food Services Department is slated to receive $148,500 as part of a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Healthy Meals Incentives Initiative. Lexington Three is one of 264 school districts across 44 states and the District of Columbia to be awarded portions of nearly $30 million from the USDA.

The funds can be used to support districts in efforts to improve the nutritional quality of their meals and to modernize their operations through efforts such as staff training programs, kitchen updates/renovations, and redesigning of food prep areas/service spaces.  "Giving our students in the Batesburg-Leesville community the knowledge to grow and prepare their own food will benefit them throughout their lifetime", said Todd A. Bedenbaugh, Chief Operations Officer. 

“When we strengthen school meal quality, we strengthen child health,” said USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Food, Nutrition, and Consumer Services Stacy Dean. “These grants are the largest targeted investment USDA has ever made for school meal programs in small and rural communities. We want to ensure every child in America has the opportunity to attend a school with high quality, nutritious meals, and this support is a step in that direction.”
