Food Services & Nutrition
The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind offers its students three delicious, nutritious meals every day in the school’s dining halls at no cost to families.
Our Food Service Program ensures that students receive healthy, quality food choices to facilitate growing minds and bodies.
Students are always welcome to enjoy a healthy plate of seconds and choose from our special mealtime features including a salad bar, ice cream bar and more. Healthy snacks are provided between meals.

Special Dietary Needs
We are always willing to accommodate the special dietary needs of students who are disabled. Federal regulations require us to obtain a physician’s statement that identifies:
The child’s disability and an explanation of why the disability restricts the child’s diet.
The major life activity affected by the disability.
The food or foods to be omitted from the child’s diet and the food
or choice of foods that must be substituted.
The physician’s statement should be given to a school nurse. The school’s nursing staff works with the Food Service Department to determine how to best accommodate special dietary needs. Substitutions may be limited due to availability.
