USDA Announces Summer Food Service Program

LAUREL, Md. (AP) —  USDA officials are joining Anne Arundel County schools leaders to announce efforts to feed children in the community over the summer and share food safety tips.

USDA undersecretaries Kevin Concannon and Elisabeth Hagen will visit students Thursday at Maryland City Elementary School in Laurel to announce free meals for all children ages 2 to 18 in the Meade High School cluster over the summer. It’s part of the USDA’s Summer Food Service Program, which aims to ease childhood hunger while schools are out of session.

The event will also involve a one-day food safety camp for more than 200 students and a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the school’s new garden.

    Amazing how the same people who qualify for these free meals get food stamps and other aid yet we still have to feed their kids. Are the parents held responsible for anything?

    It’s all about the vote people. They could give a rat’s a$$ about you & me because they don’t have to live with or near these vermin feces. They want to stay on the gravy train ride. Blacks & Hispanics 99% of the welfare bunnies in Md.

    The government should give us more food stamps and money so we could live better and not need these summer programs. I think it is a small price to pay for the past actions by the government.
