Are students being provided meals during the state-mandated school closures?

Note: This help topic is out of date and currently archived.

HCPSS is providing free breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and weekend meals, weekdays from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m., at locations throughout Howard County. HCPSS will continue to provide free Grab-N-Go meals to anyone age 18 and under and/or any HCPSS student, throughout state-mandated school closures, extended through the end of the school year. There is no application, enrollment, or fees to participate in this program. Children do not need to be present; parents/guardians may pick up meals for their child(ren).

Recognizing that families may find it difficult to pick up meals for their children at the locations or times when meals are served, the guidelines for meal pickup have been revised to allow for a designee to collect meals. Details can be found online.
