Programs & Grants
The At-Risk Afterschool Meal Program (ARAMP), also referred to as the Supper Program, allows schools to provide free meals in low-income areas during after school programs that offer educational and/or enrichment activities.
This United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) nutrition assistance program is run at the state level by the South Carolina Department of Social Services’ Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) division. CCSD’s Nutrition Services Department works with qualifying schools and their after school programs to coordinate the ARAMP.
After school program coordinators (or school administrators in middle/high schools) are responsible for maintaining daily attendance records and meal count records provided by Nutrition Services and distribution of program enrollment information.
CCSD’s Nutrition Services Department is responsible for the preparation and serving of the meal along with program oversight, which includes: training, monitoring and application renewals.
- The supper program launched at seven schools in October 2012
- 48 schools are currently eligible to participate
- Over 370,000 suppers are served annually
- Qualifying schools may be brought on board throughout the school year
