Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 59-63-790 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 59-63-765 of the 1976 Code, by school year 1993-94 By school year 2018-19, each school district shall implement in each school in the district a nutritional, well-balanced school breakfast and lunch program at no cost to the student. The costs associated with the school breakfast and lunch program shall be borne by the State Department."

Waivers may also be granted if participation in the program is too small to allow the program to be cost-effective or may create substantial scheduling difficulties. The waiver may be permanent or may be of a specified length of time as determined by the board. The State Board of Education shall promulgate those regulations necessary to implement the provisions of this act."
SECTION 3. Sections 59-63-765 and 59-63-780 of the 1976 Code are repealed.
