Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) will continue distributing free meals to children throughout the summer, with several sites set up to hand out boxes with a week’s worth of food.
During the pandemic, Montgomery has operated several locations for food distribution in order to ensure no child is left hungry. The bulk meal boxes provide breakfast and lunch for seven days and are accompanied by a box of fresh produce and half gallon of milk (MCPS).
According to Bethesda Beat:
Throughout the pandemic, MCPS has provided millions of free meals to children in the county, thanks to waivers of federal mandates about school meals that were recently extended through June 2022.
This month, MCPS plans to operate several locations, but only on certain days. The workers will provide a “bulk” box to families that include seven days’ worth of meals.
