WASHINGTON COUNTY -- Seventeen public schools in Washington County will offer free breakfast for all students during the upcoming school year. No student at those schools will pay for breakfast, regardless of income, said Jeff Proulx, supervisor of food and nutrition services for Washington County Public Schools. The schools are part of the Maryland Meals for Achievement (MMFA) program. This is different from the National School Lunch Program, which offers free or discounted meals for students at all schools - not just those that qualify for MMFA.
