Acceptance and participation requirements for the Program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service. Meals will be provided at the sites and times as follows:

Charles County Public Schools is offering free breakfast and lunch for all children 18 and younger while the school system is closed from March 16 to 27.

The curbside distribution of breakfast packs and cold, bagged lunches will take place at eight sites:

  • Henry E. Lackey High School;
  • Maurice J. McDonough High School;
  • St. Charles High School;
  • Westlake High School;
  • Milton M. Somers Middle School;
  • Indian Head Elementary School;

The outdoor distribution is 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday, rain or shine. CCPS food and nutrition employees will staff each location.

Unlike the summer meals program, Lunch on Us, the food cannot be consumed at the distribution sites, however, children must be present to receive the meals.

  Each child present will receive one bagged lunch which can include items such as a cold cut sandwich, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, milk, and juice. The child can also pick up one shelf-stable breakfast pack for the following morning that has cereal, crackers, and juice.
