The global COVID-19 outbreak caused the world to shut down, specifically the United States in March 2020. Consequently, schools - which provided twice daily meals to students - closed, as well. This food source was one on which hundreds of thousands of children depended. Governor Hogan of Maryland worked closely with Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) to launch feeding programs so no child would go hungry while schools were closed, and while unemployment soared to an all-time high.
