HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico County Public Schools is making free meals available to students in two different ways while students are learning virtually.

The division’s Nutrition Services Department will be providing breakfast and lunch to students. Nutrition staff members will offer curbside pickup at all HCPS schools and transportation services will give out free meals at 66 bus stops using school buses.

Free meals are available to any child 18 years old or younger, and families can pick them up at any location regardless of where their student is enrolled. Student names and ID numbers do not need to be given to get meals.

The division also encourages families to apply for free and reduced-price meals after the program expires on Jan. 1, 2021.
