  • Home delivery will continue to families who have been receiving summer meal service.
  • There are no income requirements.

  • Home deliveries will be made prior to 1:00 pm, every weekday that schools are open.
  • There will be no deliveries on days that schools are closed.

Meal Service for Students in the School Buildings – Students who are in the school buildings will receive free meals under the USDA program.

While meals for all children are currently free, families who normally fill out Free and Reduced Meal Benefit applications should still complete and turn in the application. Meal benefit applications affect school programs such as Title 1, Maryland Meals for Achievement and other initiatives that benefit children.
