Henrico, Va. June 12, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools’ “grab-and-go” meals distribution service will move to a summer schedule Monday, as will its mobile technology hubs and an information hotline designed to help families during HCPS’ closure for the coronavirus pandemic.
In an effort to increase efficiency and anticipate the needs of families, the grab-and-go service will shift some locations and reduce the number of sites from 15 to 14. The service will operate during the summer from Monday through Thursday, in accordance with HCPS’ traditional summer schedule.
In addition to the daily breakfasts and lunches, on Thursdays, students, parents and guardians can also pick up meals for Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. 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.
