BCPS students will receive free meals this school year
Meal delivery for all students at 87 BCPS schools will begin on the first day of the school year, Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2020, thanks to approval of a BCPS application to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
CEP allows schools in high-poverty neighborhoods to serve breakfast and lunch, at no cost, to all enrolled students without collecting household applications.
In addition, the USDA announced Monday that, considering the global pandemic, its meals program, which allowed BCPS and other organizations to provide free meals to all youth throughout the summer, will be extended through December 31, 2020.
More details about CEP and the free meals program for all students will be released by BCPS in the next few days.
