BCPS field representative named one of only 12 national Afterschool Meals Champions

TOWSON, MD. – Samuel L. Mason III, a field representative in the Baltimore County Public Schools’ Office of Food and Nutrition Services, has been named by No Kid Hungry to its first-ever cohort of 12 national Afterschool Meals Champions. Mason is the only Afterschool Meals Champion from Maryland.

Throughout his six-year tenure with BCPS, Mason has been promoting the afterschool snack and supper programs. Last year, he worked to deliver more than 90,000 afterschool supper meals throughout the county.

“Sam Mason, who is known around the office as The Supper King, works with principals, teachers, and counselors to gain support to help distribute the meals after school," said Southwest Area Supervisor Bettina J. Applewhite. “He also worked to convert smaller meal snack programs to a more supplemental supper meal while keeping to the time restrictions of afterschool programs."

According to No Kid Hungry’s website, the champions were selected “from applications submitted by individuals across the country, each one detailing impressive work to make sure that children have the nutrition they need to learn, play, and grow after school. These champions represent the wide array of organizations and people providing meals nationwide through the Child and Adult Care Food Program Afterschool Meals Program, from schools to food banks to YMCAs and more."
