Somerset County Public Schools (SCPS) is the first public school system in Maryland to implement the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) system-wide. As a result, SCPS will provide free school breakfast and lunch to all students this coming school year. CEP creates Hunger-Free Schools and strengthens the entire community by promoting health and wellness, as well as offering financial support to families. The need is great – over 31% of Somerset’s population reside in a food desert, 18% are food insecure, and 19% rely on SNAP. Please join us in celebrating Somerset County’s leadership in addressing these needs and making strides towards ending child hunger!
