School System Offers Summer Meals To Students

NEWARK – In an effort to ensure students don’t go hungry, the school system will again offer free summer meals throughout the county.

Worcester County Public Schools will offer local children free meals at both school and community sites between now and the middle of August through the Summer Food Service Program.

“It’s critical for us at the Worcester County Board of Education to continue to provide kids nutritious meals,” said Odtis Collins, coordinator of food service for the school system. “When schools are closed, we want to continue to be support for them.”

Free breakfast and lunch will be offered at county schools during summer sessions, which run Monday through Thursday from June 26 to July 27. Other meal sites are spread throughout the county. Morning and afternoon snacks will be offered at Worcester County Parks and Recreation from June 19-Aug. 18. Breakfast and lunch will be served in Snow Hill at Ebenezer United Methodist Church Monday through Thursday between June 26 and Aug. 17. Lunch will be offered at the Lower Shore Family YMCA June 19-Aug. 18. Lunch will also be served at Windy Garden Apartments in Pocomoke Monday through Thursday from June 26-Aug. 17.

Is Wicomico doing this again, too? If so, it would be good if it extended through the month of August instead of ending at the end of July.

I know this will get me in trouble, but with all the ebt cards being given out just why do we need this?

A totally dependent society. Government becomes our god.

That's just great. We are already paying for their breakfast, lunch and dinner with the EBT cards. Does that mean they will get cut on the EBT cards/Food Stamps?

Please tell me what is good about extending food stamps and free food to people capable of working and paying for your own kids meals?? If you can afford a computer and the internet then you can afford to pay your on way.

Anyone whose been behind a EBT card holder can tell you most of what they buy is junk food. I watched one woman at Dollar General buy a boatload of candy and pulled out her trusty EBT card. They don't feed their kids well at all. Instead they give them crap and then wonder why they're fat. Its just ridiculous the way Social Services doesn't follow up on these people, just turn them loose and don't restrict what they buy in the way of food. Fortunately, they can't buy booze or cigarettes if they could, they would.

But seriously!! How the Heck can someone get FAT on EBT cards? I don't know, but it happens all the time!!

It's crap like this that really pisses me off. "It's for the children" "We don't want any child to go hungry." Wah Wah Wah!! Guess what, no child goes hungry. All these kids mooching off the system is already getting food stamps or EBT cards. The EBT cards is based on how many children you have. Try having a job and getting food stamps. It isn't going to work, but if you are black and no known daddy you can get all kinds of free money. This crap needs to end. This is why we voted for Trump and other Republicans.

This was the headlines in 2012. "Welfare spending jumps 32% during Obama's presidency."

That statement speaks volumes and if you have been paying attention you would see that food stamps more than doubled under Obama. Obama's administration encouraged people to apply for welfare. Obama's administration went to Mexico and paid for commercials show how you can get free welfare in America. This has got to stop!
