FCPS to buy local produce for cafeterias using state grant funds

August 1, 2023

A state grant will allow some Frederick County Public Schools cafeterias to serve more food from local growers this fall. The district received a $95,000 award from the Maryland State Department of Education through its Local Food for Schools program. FCPS will use the funds to procure fresh fruits and vegetables, coordinate engagement programs and hire a new specialist, said Robert Kelly, the system’s director of food and nutrition services.
