I bought a book on hydroponics, I have been trying to piece together things to make a lettuce raft. I have looked all over for a piece of styrofoam 2' x 2' x 1 inch. Where can i find this? I live in Charleston SC. Thank you!

Any Home Depot or Lowes will have it.

Ditto on Hme Depot: it's in the "Building Materials" section and is used as sheet insulation. There's even one that has an aluminized, mirror-like backing, which would reflect more light towards the plants.
