CCPS to offer free breakfast to all students through January 10, 2020

News Release, Charles County Public Schools

Free breakfast is being offered to all students in Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) through Jan. 10.

Some CCPS students — those who attend a Title I school or a school that participates in the Maryland Meals for Achievement (MMFA) in-classroom breakfast program — get free breakfast throughout the year. Title I schools in Charles County are C. Paul Barnhart, Dr. Gustavus Brown, Indian Head, Mt. Hope/Nanjemoy, Dr. Samuel A. Mudd, J.P. Ryon, and Eva Turner elementary schools.

MMFA provides state funding to supplement federal meal reimbursements allowing select schools to offer breakfast for all students at no charge to their families. A school is eligible for the program when at least 40 percent of its students qualify for free or reduced-price meals. 

Schools in CCPS that participate in the 2019-20 program include Arthur Middleton Elementary, Benjamin Stoddert Middle, the F.B. Gwynn Educational Center, Gale-Bailey Elementary, General Smallwood Middle, J.C. Parks Elementary, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, John Hanson Middle, Henry E. Lackey High, and Thomas Stone High schools.

CCPS Title I schools also are included in the MMFA program.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
