All school meals free in Somerset County

The Somerset County Public Schools has become the first public school system in Maryland to implement the Community Eligibility Provision district-wide, meaning all students in the system can get free school breakfast and lunch this academic year. Under the Hunger-Free Schools program by Maryland Hunger Solutions — a Baltimore nonprofit that works with the state Department of Education — schools with high percentages of low-income children can provide meals at no charge to all students. This eliminates the need for individual applications for free or reduced-price meals. Funding for the program comes from the federal Department of Agriculture. Nearly 350 schools in Maryland are eligible for the program.
