Students at select public schools in Anne Arundel County will have access to evening meals on the days that students participate in extracurricular activites or after-school child care.
The schools were "designated as eligible to receive federal funds to serve early evening meals" as part of the Child and Adult Care Food Program, according to a press release from Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS).
Five of the county's 13 participating schools are in Glen Burnie: , , , , and elementary schools. They were selected because 50 percent or more of students receive free or reduced-price meals, according to AACPS.
Each meal—served Monday through Thursday every week—will include a serving of milk, two servings of fruits and vegetables, one serving of grains, and one serving of protein.
Schools will individually announce when their programs will start, according to AACPS.
