LEONARDTOWN, Md. (June 23, 2011)—Ridge Elementary School is the latest public school in St. Mary's County that has been selected to participate in the Maryland Meals for Achievement (MMFA) program. MMFA provides a breakfast meal in the classroom to every student, every day, free of charge.

Park Hall Elementary School, George Washington Carver Elementary School, Green Holly Elementary School, Lexington Park Elementary School, Spring Ridge Middle School, and Fairlead Academy will also be participating in this state funded program for the 2011-2012 school year.
