TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Public Schools has announced changes to its meal distribution program effective Monday, February 1.
The bus stop at Lansdowne Elementary School has been removed from the list of distribution locations, and Lansdowne High School has been added to those schools offering curbside pickup from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Through its meal distribution program, BCPS provides school meals, at no cost to students, to all children ages 2 -18. Students with disabilities can receive no-cost meals regardless of age.
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 community locations across the county. Times vary according to location.
