Students Will Receive Free Meals During the Summer
Students in many summer school or recreation programs will be provided meals as part of the Montgomery County summer food program. The program ensures that children in low-income areas continue to receive nutritious meals during the summer months when school breakfasts and lunches are not available.
The free meals will be distributed at approximately 120 sites throughout the county every weekday starting June 21 and ending Aug. 26 (except July 4). Children 18 and younger are eligible to receive the meals, as are persons with physical and mental disabilities up to 21 years old.
Other community-based locations, such as religious and community sites and apartment complexes, may also be eligible for meal service. For specific information about site locations and meal eligibility, send an email to SummerFoodProgram@mcpsmd.org or call 301-284-4900.
In addition, lunch will be provided daily to children 18 years and younger on a walk-in basis at several locations throughout the county. For specific information on locations and meal times, click here.
