It’s a familiar sight on local roads—the grey Ford Transit, affectionally known as “the Chopvan.” It’s Choptank Transport’s goodwill ambassador on wheels, and during the COVID-19 crisis, it has come to the rescue, joining the fleet of vehicles delivering meals to local children and elderly stuck at home during the pandemic.
When the pandemic forced the closing of schools in mid-March, Caroline County Public Schools (CCPS) remained committed to providing healthy meals for its students. The delivery of these meals has continued through the summer meal program and has expanded to include local seniors in need.
