The Howard County Public School System is pleased to announce its participation in the 2022 Summer Food Service Program. Summer meals will be provided to all children ages 18 years and under without charge. Parents or guardians do not need to apply to get free summer meals for their children. They can simply bring their child to the safe summer meal site(s). There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.Please Note! Per Maryland State Department of Education guidelines:
• All summer meals must be eaten on site, with the exception of fresh fruit and prepackaged items.
• Parents/guardians will not be allowed to collect meals to go for their children.
• Children must be present to receive summer meals.

Reminder! There will be no meal service when schools are closed  Monday, July 4 for the Independence Day holiday and Tuesday, July 19 for the primary elections. The Summer Food Service Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), through the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and is an extension of the National School Lunch Program, which is designed to guarantee eligible children free and nutritious breakfasts and lunches during the school year
