Henrico, Va. May 8, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools will open a new distribution site for school meals Monday at Lakeside Elementary School in Henrico County’s Brookland District. The addition of Lakeside brings to 15 the number of sites where students can pick up free “grab and go” breakfasts and lunches on weekdays during the school division’s closure for coronavirus. Many students depend on school meals as a crucial part of daily nutrition. Since launching the distribution service in March to address family nutrition needs during the closure, HCPS’ School Nutrition Services Department has packaged and distributed more than 225,000 breakfasts and lunches.

The 15 sites are open from 11 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday. On Fridays, students, parents and guardians can also pick up meals for the weekends. Distribution is 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.
