Free meals distributed on Wednesdays only

HCPS curbside service joins neighborhood bus-stop service in moving to Wednesdays-only distribution of bulk meals

Changes to Henrico County Public Schools’ free meals service continue, as HCPS School Nutrition Services works to accommodate the blend of both in-person and virtual students:

  • Starting the week of Monday, March 8, curbside service will move to twice a day on Wednesdays only (7-9 a.m. and 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at all distribution sites), with bulk meal pickup for families.

Previously, neighborhood bus-stop meals service had also moved to Wednesdays only. This means that all curbside and bus delivery meal services will take place in bulk, one day a week, on Wednesdays only, beginning the week of March 8.

The school sites offering curbside service will remain the same until further notice, as will the bus-stop sites for neighborhood distribution. Scroll down to see a current list of schools and bus-stop dropoff sites offering service.

 

Schools offering curbside service will remain the same until further notice, as will the 61 bus-stop distribution sites in Henrico County neighborhoods. Schools that don’t offer curbside distribution are all within a short distance of alternate curbside sites. A list of curbside distribution sites and neighborhood bus-stop dropoff sites is below.

HCPS will continue offering free school meals through the end of the 2020-21 school year thanks to an extension of federal food aid designed to offer help during the coronavirus pandemic.

Some features of the continuing HCPS distribution plan:

  • Free meals are available to any child 18 or younger at 57 of HCPS’ 72 school locations, and at identified school bus stops.
  • Parents and guardians can pick up meals at any HCPS location regardless of where their student is enrolled.
  • Parents and guardians don’t need to provide student names or I.D. numbers to receive meals.

School curbside service: Wednesdays only

Distribution of free bulk meals takes place at 57 elementary, middle and high schools.

  • 7-9 a.m.: Hot breakfasts (when available) and cold lunches.
  • 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.: Hot lunches as well as cold breakfasts for the next day.

Neighborhood bus-stop meals distribution: Wednesdays only
