Wicomico Co. Public Schools To Feeds Kids Through Summer Food Program

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - A local school system will, once again, be helping students stay fed through the summer months.

The Food Service Department of Wicomico County Public Schools will be participating in the Summer Food Service Program, which provides meals to all children, without charge, from June 25th through August 1st. Funding support for the program reportedly comes from the Maryland State Department of Education through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Officials say 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, with no discrimination. The program is built to fill the nutrition gap for children of low-income families, while school is out for the summer.

The program will run at three Salisbury parks and playgrounds, along with a church in Hebron. Also new this year, will be a breakfast and lunch service at the Christian Shelter and the Wicomico County Housing Authority in Salisbury.
