(WWBT) - Central Virginia schools are beginning to move to their summer meal program and schedules.

Chesterfield

Chesterfield County Public Schools will begin its summer meal program on June 15.

The school division recently surpassed 1 million meals served to students during the school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our Food Service workers are heroes to many in our community,” Superintendent Dr. Merv Daugherty said. “The work they have done to prepare food, bag it for families to take home and deliver it to students has helped numerous families make sure their children are fed. I have personally visited many of these service locations, and the smiles on the students’ and expression of thanks from parents are extremely gratifying for our staff.”

The summer meal program starts on June 15 and runs through August 31 and is open to children ages 2-18.

The school system announced on June 30 that locations would no longer serve snack and dinner starting on July 1 due to the USDA not extending the waiver past June.

The food service will be closed on July 6 so five days worth of meals will be served on July 3.

Meals will be served on Mondays and Thursdays. On Monday, three days worth of meals will be provided and there will be four days worth of meals on Thursdays.
