The Office of School and Community Nutrition Programs (OSCNP) administers many federally funded child nutrition programs. The office distributes federal funds, provides training and technical assistance, conducts administrative reviews, and provides overall management of child nutrition programs.
During the temporary school closures, Maryland schools and agencies are providing free emergency meals to children 18 years and younger. Emergency meals are made available as part of the federal Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which provides reimbursements to sponsors for meals served in the summer months as well as during times of emergency school closures.
