When school lets out for the summer, many children lose access to free and reduced-price meals. In the past two weeks, Baltimore County and City both ramped up their efforts to feed these children, who account for eighty-four percent of students in Baltimore City and 47.4 percent in the county. Baltimore City and County are expanding summer programs that feed low-income children, many of whom rely on free and reduced-price meals served at their schools. The county is expanding its program to serve free lunches at four public libraries for the first time.

At a news conference, County Executive Kevin Kamenetz noted the upward trend, decrying the fact that last year's total was far higher than during any of the five years prior.
