Garrett County Public Schools Announces Summer Feeding Plan

Last Updated on Jun 29, 2020 at 10:44pm | Public Information Office

GCPS Food and Nutrition Services will be transitioning from the current (pandemic) food service to our summer feeding plan beginning in July. Due to state and federal regulations, the public will notice changes that begin on July 1st and additional modifications beginning on July 6th. The final delivery for three meals and a snack will be Tuesday, June 30th. Along with the three meals and snack to be distributed on that date, GCPS will also be distributing breakfast and lunch for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday on Tuesday, June 30. There will be no meal delivery on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
Beginning July 6th, GCPS will be transitioning into the Summer Food Service Program (SFS). With the transition into Summer Food Service, families need to be advised of changes in the current operations. The Dennett Road site will be moving to the rear parking lot at Broad Ford Elementary School (entry from Broad Ford Road) at the same distribution time, 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM. We will be adding a site at the Gorman Fire Hall from 1:00 PM – 1:20 PM. The Deer Park site at Frank Custer Drive will change service times to 12:20 PM – 12:40 PM.
Also beginning the week of July 6th, SFS will be distributing Monday thru Friday. Due to changes in programs, SFS will be distributing breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday, along with the weekend breakfasts and lunches to be provided on Fridays (beginning July 10th). SFS will distribute snacks and suppers for seven days, once a week, at each site. The delivery day for each site will remain the same throughout the summer. The locations are near the lunch sites. The sites cannot be exactly the same as the lunch sites due to program regulations.
Parents may still pick up meals without the child(ren) being present. Meals must be eaten off site. Please continue to wear a mask for pickup. In order to receive these meals, participating children are not required to be Garrett County residents, but must be 18 years old or younger. The last day for meal distribution will be August 21st.
