CCPS expanding mobile meal service, new routes begin Jan. 6 (updated)

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) is expanding its mobile meal bus service to more locations in Charles County. Beginning Wednesday, Jan. 6, school buses will deliver meal bags to additional locations convenient for all students and their families. Buses will deliver mobile meals to the sites Monday through Friday. Additional sites will be added as they are finalized. On days when CCPS calls an inclement weather code or delay, mobile meal service is canceled.

Mobile meal bags are free for all children ages 2 to 18 and include heat-and-serve food items, similar to items included in weekend meal bags handed out at CCPS curbside meal distribution sites. Curbside meal sites operate 7 to 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Details about the CCPS curbside meal sites are posted here

Children can pick up mobile meal bags or parents can pick them up. Parents picking up meal bags without their child present must show some form of identification for their child (student ID card, report card, birth certificate). Parents, caregivers and guardians should check meal bags for any items that may cause a dietary or allergy issue for a child. Items that may be included in mobile meal bags are posted on the CCPS website at
