***FCPS Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) Office proposed waiver for Summer Feeding Program 2020:

FNS is proposing that all summer sites not be monitored the first week of the Summer Feeding Program unless they are new sites. Returning sites will be reviewed within the first 2-3 weeks. If approved, implementation will be for the summer program starting June 2020 through August 2020. Contact the FNS office at 301-644-5061 with questions or comments.***



Among the many health benefits, studies have shown that students who start their morning with a healthy breakfast perform better in school!
