GRAB AND GO MEALS

While Henrico County Public Schools has closed its facilities to combat the spread of coronavirus, we know that many of our students depend on school lunches and breakfasts as a crucial part of their daily nutrition. Henrico Schools is addressing this need with a plan to set up sites throughout Henrico County to distribute free school meals.

 

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/.
