The Department of Child Nutrition of Calvert County Public Schools (CCPS) is happy to announce the addition of snacks to its Grab ‘n Go meal kits. Due to waivers in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), CCPS is now eligible to participate and will start including snacks in its seven-day meal kits, beginning with distribution on February 5. Snacks will typically include items such as yogurt, cheese, granola, sunflower seeds, fruit, juice and graham crackers.

Kits continue to be available free of charge; however, parents/guardians wishing to pick up meals without their children being present must pre-register. Families may register by calling the Child Nutrition Office at 443.550.8680 Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Any parent/guardian who is unsure if their child is already registered for the program may contact the Child Nutrition Office. Once registered, parents/guardians may pick up meals without their children being present.
