BCPS stu­dents will re­ceive free meals this school year

The Dundalk Eagle - - SCHOOL NEWS -

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.
