“These awesome members of our AACPS family are among the unsung heroes of the pandemic,” Superintendent George Arlotto said. “They have been outside of our schools in all kinds of weather conditions because they are committed to the service of children. We should all be proud of these incredible public servants.”

AACPS is currently serving approximately 10,000 children more than 40,000 meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, and a snack) at more than 120 sites around the county each day schools are in session. Children ages 2-18 are eligible for free meals. There are no income restrictions, and families can arrange to pick up meals without children present by calling 410-222-5900.
