Henrico County Public Schools will add 8 more sites for ‘grab and go’ meal distribution
Henrico, Va. March 18, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools will add seven additional food distribution sites Thursday and another Monday, bringing to 14 the sites where students can pick up free “grab and go” breakfasts and lunches during the school division’s closure for coronavirus. Many students depend on school meals as a crucial part of daily nutrition. Henrico Schools began addressing the need earlier this week with meal distribution at six sites throughout Henrico County.
Students can pick up a packaged lunch and breakfast each school day between 11 a.m. and noon, on a first-come, first-served basis. Food distribution is open to all students, regardless of what school they attend, as well as others age 18 and under. Due to program requirements the school division must follow, adults must be accompanied by each child 18 and under who needs a meal.
Pick-up hours are scheduled for weekdays from 11 a.m. to noon, but hours and locations may increase again, depending on demand. Families should check the latest information about locations and pick-up hours at the HCPS’ COVID-19 webpage, henricoschools.us/covid19/.
