5/29 Weekend Bag Distribution

When: May 29, 2020

Manna Food Center and MCPS have been collaborating for the past few weeks on bulk distributions of weekend bags to support families when MCPS meal sites are not operating (usually Saturday & Sunday).  We have been selecting sites based on convenience to multiple meal site locations as well as in an attempt to address specific needs of communities that don’t have an MCPS meal site nearby.

This week we will be providing weekend bags on Friday, 5/29 from 11am-1pm.  MCPS school buses and DOT staff will be at the following sites, facilitating:

Argyle Middle School – 2400 Bel Pre Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20906

Montgomery Blair High School – 51 University Blvd E, Silver Spring, MD 20901

Damascus High School – 25921 Ridge Rd, Damascus, MD 20872

Seneca Valley HS  – 19401 Crystal Rock Dr, Germantown, MD 20874

Gaithersburg ES  – 35 N Summit Ave, Gaithersburg, MD 20877

Quince Orchard HS  – 15800 Quince Orchard Rd, Gaithersburg, MD 20878

Galway Elementary – 12612 Galway Dr, Silver Spring, MD 20904

Fairland ES  – 14315 Fairdale Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20905

New Hampshire Estates Elementary – 8720 Carroll Ave, Silver Spring, MD 20903

Sargent Shriver ES  – 12518 Greenly St, Silver Spring, MD 20906

The bags are designed to provide a few family-sized pantry staples (canned vegetables, beans, tuna, rice, pasta) for two days as well as provide some foods that kids can prepare themselves (instant oatmeal, fruit cups, milk box.  The number of bags provided to each household is determined by household size and bag inventory at each site.
