Five locations have been removed from the list: 2420 Bibury Lane, Kriel Street and Englewood Avenue, Remoor Road and Digby Road, Mollye Road and Sage Court (@ apartments), and Slade Ave and Warren Park Drive.

Through its fall meal distribution program, BCPS is providing school meals, at no cost to students, to all children ages 2-18, through Wednesday, Dec. 23. Students with disabilities can receive no-cost meals regardless of age.

The meals, supported with funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, are being distributed at more than 300 community locations by the BCPS Office of Food and Nutrition Services in cooperation with the Office of Transportation. The large number of distribution sites is designed to provide increased access to meals during virtual learning.

No sign-up or registration is required, and students or their parents or caregivers can pick up the meals. In general, the meals are distributed on Monday and Wednesday.

On Monday, BCPS distributes two breakfast and two lunch meals. On Wednesday, BCPS distributes meals (breakfast and lunch) for three days. The nutritious meals include cold food items, fruit, vegetables, milk, and breakfast items.

Meals are distributed in two ways:

  • Curbside pickup at the main entrance of every middle and high school, from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m.
  • By bus from 270 locations across the county. Times vary according to location.
