Schools In Baltimore Provide Free Meals To Students While Schools Are Closed
After Governor Hogan announced yesterday that all Maryland public schools will be closed from March 16- March 27, many questions and concerns arose.
Parents are wondering how their children will learn and who will watch them. Additionally, many are about what kids who rely on school meals will do.
Fortunately, Baltimore City Public Schools announced that they will run a food service program, which will provide free grab-and-go meals to students 18 years old and younger. In addition, students over the age of 18 who have special needs and participate in school programs will also be able to receive food.
The meals will be available at eight emergency food distribution centers from 10 am-2 pm from Monday through Friday for the week of March 16. As for the week of March 23, the district is working with Baltimore City’s Emergency Food Working Group to find other resources and means for food distribution.
Below are the meal sites:
- Sandtown-Winchester Achievement Academy
- Dorothy I. Height Elementary School
- Alexander Hamilton Elementary School
- The Historic Cherry Hill Elementary/Middle School
