WCPS Reduces Meal Site Operating Days; Still Providing Five Days of Food to Children

Posted April 3, 2020

Hagerstown, MD (April 3, 2020) - Washington County Public Schools (WCPS) is changing how meals will be provided to our community's children while schools are closed, but visitors at meal sites will still receive five days of food each week. 

Beginning Monday, April 6, meals will be served on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Children will receive two meals on Mondays, one meal on Wednesdays and two meals on Thursdays. One "meal" consists of lunch, a snack and breakfast for the following day. All food is served in a grab-n-go style to promote social distancing. Meals are provided to any child 18 or younger who is present at the site.

The change in operating schedule provides greater support of Governor Hogan's order for Marylanders to stay at home while continuing to provide the same level of support for children to access food, which has been a priority of WCPS through the school closure period.
