HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico County Public Schools is making changes to its meal service starting Monday to accommodate in-person and virtual students.

From Feb. 22 through March 5, curbside service will only be at middle and high school sites on Mondays and Tuesdays, and then at all participating school sites on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Also starting the week of Feb. 22, the neighborhood bus-stop meals service will only be on Wednesdays. Meals for five days will be provided.

Then on March 5, those using the curbside service will be able to get meals for the following Monday and Tuesday.

“Starting the week of March 8, curbside service will also move to Wednesdays only, offering students bulk meals at current school facility curbside locations. This means that all curbside and bus delivery meal services will take place in bulk, one day a week, on Wednesdays only (with the first Wednesday being March 10),” Henrico Schools said.

Schools offering curbside service and the bus-stop sites for neighborhood distribution will stay the same until further notice. To view those locations, click here.
