Henrico County Public Schools to continue free student meals through 2020-21 school year

Henrico County

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Henrico County Public Schools plans to continue offering free meals to students through the end of the current school year.

This comes after an extension to federal food aid which is designed to help feed people during the coronavirus pandemic.

HCPS School Nutrition Services Department distributed free breakfast and lunches to students using a two-pronged system involving staff members hosting free curbside pick-up services at all Henrico County Public Schools. Another team of HCPS Pupil Transportation Services distributed free meals directly to 61 stops in Henrico neighborhoods using school buses as transport.

The HCPS distribution plan features free meals to any HCPS child 18-years-old or younger at all school locations and designated bus stops, as well as parents or guardians being allowed to pick up meals regardless of where their student is enrolled.

I.D. numbers and student names are not required to receive meals.

Distribution of free meals will take place at all elementary, middle and high schools:

  • Monday through Thursday (Friday meals are distributed on Thursdays.)
  • 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.

HCPS buses will distribute free school meals to neighborhoods two days a week. Participants are reminded to follow social distancing and mask guidelines at bus stops.

  • Mondays and Wednesdays. On Mondays, buses will distribute meals for Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesdays, breakfasts and lunches will be distributed for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, as well as Monday breakfast.
  • Buses will make 30-minute stops at each location, between 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
