No Kid Hungry Maryland recently recognized the phenomenal work of the HCPS Food and Nutrition staff. Throughout the pandemic, our Food and Nutrition staff served as first responders in the community, ensuring students received meals despite supply chain issues, staffing shortages, and closures. without their efforts, many children would have had a hard time accessing the food they needed. Their dedication, flexibility, and creativity truly made a difference in the lives of students and families during an uncertain and challenging time. During this time, Harford County Food and Nutrition Services served 3,432,589 meals through the Summer Food Service Program, which operated during the school year as well as summer.
A special shout out to Bel Air Middle School's Joe Baker for being chosen as this year's Maryland School Nutrition Association's Employee of the Year! The certificate of recognition from No Kid Hungry Maryland was presented at Bel Air Middle School this week.
Congratulations to all HCPS Food and Nutrition staff and to Joe Baker! We appreciate all that you did and continue to do to serve our students and community!

This is important information for families with students in first grade through twelfth grade.
For over 20 years, HCPS school counselors have administered needs assessments. The results of the assessment are used to determine how HCPS staff can provide more direct, and specific supports to our students. In the past, we have not sent a communication making families aware of the upcoming needs assessment, but we understand that some families would like to know more about how HCPS collects information to better support your student in school. We hope you will encourage your child to share their true thoughts and feelings as we look to provide as supportive and nurturing a school environment as possible for all students.
Students do not have to participate in the Wellness Needs Assessment with the school counselor and can let their school counselor know if they do not want to participate. You may also send an email to your student’s school counselor to make them aware if you do not want your child to participate in the Wellness Needs Assessment.
