FCPS - FREE MEALS
Effective Wednesday May 19th, the schedule for to-go meal service at the 19 schools that are open to the community will change to Wednesdays only from 11am-1pm. May 14th will be the last date that children in the community (who are not physically in a school learning) can pick up to-go meals on a Friday. After that, the next pick up day in all 19 schools open to the community will be Wednesday May 19th and every Wednesday thereafter from 11am-1pm. We will continue to offer breakfast, lunch and supper at all schools to students who attend school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for the remainder of the school year
We are excited to announce that the USDA has approved FREE meals for all children 18 years old and younger!
All FCPS schools serve breakfast, lunch and supper (to-go) for FREE to all children learning in school buildings during the week.
All meals will be individually wrapped or compartmentalized.
Free breakfast and lunch meals will be available to children while they are in school learning 4 or 5 days a week. On the days when students are learning in a school building, they can also take a free to-go meal home for supper that same day (and meals for the weekend or holidays).
Due to the amount of food being distributed for the remainder of the days, we encourage families who want additional meals for the days when students are not in the school building learning (virtual days at home, weekends, holidays) to pick up the additional meals at the child’s school on a day when they are learning in the building or visit one of the open community sites listed below on from 11am-1pm on Wednesdays to pick up the additional meals.
21 MEAL DISTRIBUTION SITES
Nineteen FCPS schools listed below will distribute to-go breakfast, lunch and supper meals for FREE from 11am-1pm on Wednesdays and Fridays, until May 14th, to ALL children in the community on days when they are not physically in a school building learning.
