SKIPWITH NEWS – County Food Plan – POSTED 3/16/2020

Count Food Plan

Beginning Tuesday, March 17, six sites will open to distribute free “grab and go” school meals. Our students can pick up lunches and breakfasts each school day on a first-come, first-served basis. Food distribution is open to all students, regardless of what school they attend, as well as others under age 18. Please note that adults must be accompanied by each child under 18 who needs a meal. Pick-up hours are scheduled for 11 a.m. to noon, but hours and locations may increase, depending on demand.


The HCPS school nutrition staff will regularly assess student needs. Food availability and updates will be shared with HCPS families via our full slate of communication platforms, including www.henricoschools.us/covid19.


Where can your student pick up meals? Five schools will operate as hubs for distribution, where food will be prepared, packaged and distributed to students. Meals will also be transported to Henrico Volunteer Rescue Squad 31 in Sandston, to be distributed. Locations may be expanded for the week of March 23-27, depending on demand. If the school closure period is extended past March 30, HCPS leaders will assess the status of the food distribution program.


The student meal distribution sites (starting Tuesday, March 17 from 11 a.m.-noon) are:


  • Fairfield Middle School, 5121 Nine Mile Road, Henrico, Va.
  • Glen Lea Elementary School, 3909 Austin Ave., Henrico, Va.
  • Hermitage High School, 8301 Hungary Spring Road, Henrico, Va.
  • Highland Springs Elementary School, 600 Pleasant Street, Highland Springs, Va. 23075
  • Quioccasin Middle School, 9400 Quioccasin Road, Henrico, Va.
  • Henrico Volunteer Rescue Squad 31, 5301 Huntsman Road, Sandston, Va.


The next two weeks will be filled with the challenge of keeping our children healthy by maintaining social distancing and still ensuring their learning by using the provided distant learning packet.. We thank you in advance for teamwork. We hope that you stay healthy and we look forward to seeing everyone back soon!
