Harford County Public Schools
Summer Meals Program
When schools is out children are still hungry, and for those children that might otherwise go without meals during the summer, the Harford County Public Schools runs the Summer Table Program. This program serves breakfast, lunch, and snacks at stationary locations throughout the county to children 18 and under, often at no charge; examples of these programs are select summer camps and the Harford Boys and Girls Clubs.
A new addition to the Summer Table program is the mobile summer meals program called Meet Up and Eat Up. Through this new program, Harford County Public School Food and Nutrition staff will bring vans full of prepared boxed lunches directly to neighborhoods with large populations of children on free and reduced lunch. The goal is to ensure that no child goes hungry, and that all are able to receive the food and nutrition they need.
All Harford County students age 2 to 18 are eligible for Summer Meals. Children DO NOT have to be enrolled in the program serving the meals in order to receive a meal there. This is true for both the stationary sites and the mobile meals sites. Please see below for a site location near you.
For students living in the northern end of the county – Students receiving free or reduced meals in the North Harford school district may register to receive FREE monthly kid-friendly “boxes” of food in June, July, and August from Mason Dixon Community Services. Available Monday thru Thursday mornings 9 a.m. till noon at Mason-Dixon, 708 Highland Road, Street.
