Gwinnett County to expand summer meal program because of COVID-19

Gwinnett County government is planning to step in to pick up where Gwinnett County Public Schools’ meal service will leave off when it ends this weekend, making sure kids continue to have access to meals during the COVID-19 novel coronavirus pandemic.

The county government and school system are working together to transition from the meal service program that the district has run for the last two months to the county’s expanded Summer Meals program. The school system’s program ends Friday. The county’s Summer Meals program will begin the following Monday.
