    Prince George’s County Public Schools (PGCPS) has expanded the number of sites available to students for “grab and go” meals during the statewide public school temporary closings.

    Starting Tuesday, March 17, a total of 25 schools will offer breakfast, lunch and a snack on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Last week, PGCPS announced nine locations to serve as sites for lunch through Friday, March 27.  All Maryland public schools are closed as part of efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

    “Expanding the number of meal sites will allow us to reach more communities that serve some of our most vulnerable families,” said Dr. Monica Goldson, Chief Executive Officer. “The PGCPS family is at our best when we come together as a village for our students.”

    Dr. Goldson announced the expanded locations in a letter today to families and community members. School system staff will be on hand to distribute the meals in the cafeteria or parking lot depending on the weather. Students may pick up all three meals, which may include cold cereal, a sack lunch, fruit and milk, in one visit. Parents and guardians are not required to accompany students; meals will not be served to adults and adults may not pick up meals for children. Student IDs are not required. Additional sites may be added depending on the demand.
