Students Deserve at least 30 minutes for lunch.
We the undersigned, feel that it is the duty, responsibility, and obligation of the Harford County Board of Education to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for the children of Harford County. To this end, we feel it is imperative that every child in Harford County Public Schools be afforded a minimum of thirty minutes for lunch each day. Harford County students are among less than 10% of students in Maryland with less than 30 minutes to get and eat their lunch. Research has shown that kids need adequate nutrition to excel in the classroom. We need to make sure that our students have ample time to eat a nutritious meal before returning to the rigors of the classroom.
