NOTE: This information was updated July 12 to reflect that 30 summer meals sites will now offer free meals to all children.
Henrico, Va., June 21, 2022 — Henrico County Public Schools is offering meals to children this summer at 30 area sites as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program. Service dates for the various locations are listed below. The federal program is administered in Henrico County by the HCPS Department of School Nutrition Services, to help ensure that children receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.
All children are eligible for free meals, regardless of whether they are enrolled in summer programs. After the scheduled daily meals service for children enrolled in summer programs is over, meals service will begin for other children ages 18 or younger who are accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians are not eligible for the free meals service. Meals are not available to go and must be consumed at the summer program sites.
Food service will be provided from Monday through Thursday each week during the summer. (All sites will be closed July 4 in recognition of the Independence Day holiday. Because food service sites will be closed July 4, all high schools listed below will be open Friday, July 8 for food service.) Breakfast will be served from 7-9 a.m. and lunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Specific breakfast and lunch times will vary depending on location.
Service is on a first come, first served basis, regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the administration of the meal service.
