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.
