Baltimore County Public Schools will cover breakfast and lunch meals for all students regardless of income starting in the 2023-24 academic year. During the pandemic, Baltimore County was among a handful of districts that provided free meals regardless of parents’ income status. Now, the district will likely return to this practice permanently. “Two-thirds of all students, which is 73,000 students, now qualify for free and reduced meals in BCPS, but there are thousands more who need food and are invisible in these statistics,” said school board member Christina Pumphrey.
