Food and Nutrition

FCPS understands that families affected by the federal government shutdown may have difficulty paying for school meals.
If your family is affected, FCPS is providing help. Please contact the FCPS Food and Nutrition Services Office by email to Kathryn.Fostik@fcps.org or phone to 301-644-5061 for assistance with the application for free or reduced-price school meals for children. The assistance may be temporary, lifted when the shutdown ends, or longer lasting for those who continue to qualify.  Ms. Fostik is happy to assist.
