Children in Henrico County guaranteed healthy meals this summer


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program is making its way to Henrico County Public Schools this summer.

The program will serve 30 sites and provide healthy, nutritious meals for children while school is out for the summer. Food will be served on a first come/served basis. 

All children will be eligible for free meals, though children who are enrolled in summer programs will receive their meals first. Children age 18 or younger accompanied by an adult guardian will then be able to receive the free food service. Parents and guardians are not eligible.

Meals will be available Monday through Thursday each week. Breakfast will be served from 7-9 a.m. and lunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Times will vary based on location.
