Summer Meals Program


Charles County Public Schools
Summer Meals Program

June 12 – August 13, 2020



The Summer Meals Program is a free meals program for all children and youth ages 18 and younger who live in Charles County.

Beginning the week of June 29, Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) will continue to serve Grab and Go meals at our eleven existing meal sites Mondays through Thursdays between the hours of 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. For your convenience, we will serve two meal bags per participant on Thursdays.  These will be meals for both Thursday and Friday. CCPS will serve Summer Meals throughout the summer months until Thursday, August 13.

CCPS meal distribution sites can provide parents food without their child being present. However, the pick-up person must be a child’s parent or guardian. Parents/guardians must show staff their child’s CCPS student identification (ID) badge or report card copy showing their student ID number.

Parents with children not yet enrolled in school should attempt to bring some type of age verification to show to site staff, such as a copy of a birth certificate.

There will be no need for parents to exit their vehicles to obtain the meals.  Parents and guardians need only show their child’s ID badge or report card to a staff member on site. The 11 meal sites operate 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Thursdays.  Curbside meals are provided at the following schools:

  • Henry E. Lackey High School;
  • Maurice J. McDonough High School;
  • St. Charles High School;
  • Westlake High School;
  • Milton M. Somers Middle School;
  • Dr. Thomas L. Higdon Elementary;
  • Indian Head Elementary School;
  • Mt. Hope/Nanjemoy Elementary School;
  • Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School;
  • J.C. Parks Elementary School; and
  • J.P. Ryon Elementary School.

Parents can pick up the grab and go meals for their child daily. Any requests from parents asking for additional meals on the same service day at other sites will not be honored. Visit the CCPS website at for the latest information.
