The Food Service Department of Wicomico County Public Schools is once again participating in the Summer Food Service Program, with funding support from the Maryland State Department of Education through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Summer food service begins Monday, June 26. Meals will be provided on all weekdays except July 4. All summer food sites will operate until Aug. 11 except Cathedral of Restoration, which will end service July 27.
With children not in school, the Summer Food Service Program operates at open sites in the community – a shelter, playgrounds, an apartment complex, and churches. The Summer Food Service Program of Wicomico Schools will have breakfast and lunch service at seven Salisbury locations this summer.
Meals are available to all children without charge. Acceptance and participation requirements for the program and all activities are the same for all regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, gender identity, disability or any other factor. There will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

The Summer Food Service Program is designed specifically to fill the nutrition gap for children of low-income families when schools are not in session.
Meals are being served at the sites and times as follows:
