Food of the Month ​​

The Department of Juvenile Services' Food and Nutritional Services team assist in learning about nutrition through various traditions such as posters, monthly food menu choices, and ot​her fun activities. We incorporate menu selections and food choices into holidays, celebrations, and special occasions, such as National School Breakfast Week, National School Lunch Week, and National Nutrition Month. Each month, the program focus on a Food of the Month to serve in the department's residential facility cafeterias. The purpose of the Food of the Month promotion is to highlight the nutritional benefits of healthy eating, wellness, and making health conscious food choices in an adolescent's diet. This food item is chosen based on consideration of the diverse ethnicities, cultures, and the correlation to the traditions of various backgrounds.

Maryland's Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides nutritious meals and snacks to low-income children (ages 18 and under) during June, July, and August when school is not in session. For more information visit the Maryland Public Schools website to find a site near you.

May's Food of the Month is Strawberries!

Broccoli 

The Dietary Guidelines and MyPlate promote choosing brightly colored green, red, yellow, and orange fruits and vegetables. Eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables to get the nutrients your body needs. Strawberries are a delicious way to consume more red produce. With a 91% water content, strawberries are a refreshing and hydrating treat. These bright, juicy berries are loaded with heart-healthy antioxidants along with vitamin C, manganese, folate, and potassium. Add some sliced strawberries to your morning cereal or grab a handful for a light snack. Eating the color red has never been so easy or delicious!
