TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Public Schools has announced changes to its fall meal distribution program effective Monday, September 21.
Seven locations have been added to the list of distribution sites: Beech Drive and Wilson Point Park (boat launch lot); corner of Baker Lane, Holiday Manor Road, and Wescott Way; Lantern Hill Apartments; and Kingsville, Villa Cresta, Winfield, and Woodbridge elementary schools.
One location has been removed from the list: Foxfield Road (at the pool house). Times for meal distribution have been updated for Seneca Elementary and Winand Elementary. (Details can be found in the detailed list that accompanies this release.)
Through its fall meal distribution program, BCPS is providing school meals, at no cost to students, to all children ages 2-18, through Wednesday, Dec. 23. Students with disabilities can receive no-cost meals regardless of age.
The meals, supported with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are being distributed at more than 300 community locations by the BCPS Office of Food and Nutrition Services in cooperation with the Office of Transportation. The large number of distribution sites is designed to provide increased access to meals during virtual learning.
No sign-up or registration is required, and students or their parents or caregivers can pick up the meals. In general, the meals are distributed on Monday and Wednesday. On Monday, BCPS distributes two breakfast and two lunch meals. On Wednesday, BCPS distributes meals (breakfast and lunch) for three days. The nutritious meals include cold food items, fruit, vegetables, milk, and breakfast items.
The distribution schedule will be adjusted as needed to align with the school system’s schedule.
Meals are distributed in two ways:
- Curbside pickup at the main entrance of every middle and high school, from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m.
- By bus from more than 260 locations across the county. Times vary according to location.
