Meals and delivery are provided at no cost to you for all the children 18 and under.

After our first week of meal sites, Garrett County Public Schools has found it necessary to change the current meal delivery plan. Beginning Wednesday, March 25th, all meals will be delivered to the current list of meal sites at lunchtime only. GCPS will not be offering an evening delivery. Three meals and a snack will be supplied at that time. The lunch meal will be a hot meal, while all other items will be cold or dry items.
Home delivery of meals for those who have signed up will be delivered beginning on Wednesday, March 25th. Deliveries will be daily between 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM this week. Beginning Monday, March 30th home-delivered meals will be delivered once a week and will include 5 days of meals. It is the hope that all of the meals can be delivered on Monday, March 30th, between 11:30 AM and 1:00 PM.

All cafeterias in Garrett County Public Schools have computerized Point of Sale. To pay for purchases, students enter their Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) and proceed to the cashier. Students pay for purchases using cash or using money placed "On Account". If a student cannot remember their PIN the cafeteria staff will be able to give it to them. Please help your child to learn this number and teach them that they should not share the number with anyone, as it is the access to their account.

Students who properly enter their number when purchasing their meal move more quickly through the service line.

Parents have the option of sending cash or check with their student(s) for deposit, however, we strongly encourage parents to monitor, view and fund students account by logging on to We encourage parents to also monitor their child’s cafeteria activity and account balances throughout the year. Using this tool to do so makes it easier than ever.

Depositing funds on account will allow students to purchase breakfast, lunch or any a la carte item.

Benefits of placing money "On Account"

  • Safe- the PIN ensures only the one student can access the account.
  • Convenient- money cannot be lost or forgotten in the morning rush.
  • Fast- cafeteria lines move more quickly so there's plenty of time to eat.
  • Monitored- see the secure account balance anytime on
  • Peace of Mind- the auto replenish feature on ensures money for meals is always there for the student.
