Team Chesterfield families and staff,
This email includes several updates related to our Food Services operations and the Chesterfield Food Bank during the school division’s closure that will span until at least March 27:
Chesterfield County Public Schools will provide free meals to students while the school division is closed during the next two weeks due to COVID-19.
Meals are for children ages 18 and younger, and will be available for pickup at a Food Services kiosk located outside of the school. The attached chart provides school and community locations at which food is available and the hours of service.
This program provides lunch for that particular day (Monday-Friday) and breakfast for the next morning. Meals will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
In accordance with federal civil rights law and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s civil rights regulations and policies, institutions participating in USDA programs are prohibited from discriminating based on race, color, national origin, sex, religious creed, disability, age, political beliefs or reprisal or retaliation for prior civil rights activity in any program or activity conducted or funded by the USDA.
The Chesterfield Food Bank will be serving breakfast/lunch items to children. Items will be available for pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4-6:30 p.m. at the Chester location at 12211 Iron Bridge. Distribution begins on March 17.
This will be a drive-through distribution, eliminating the need for clients to leave their vehicles. The food will be distributed in the parking lot directly to each vehicle.
Friday distributions at the Chester location will continue beginning at 4 p.m.
Saturday distributions will continue at the normal school locations. Food will be distributed in the parking lot, allowing families to drive through for pickup.
The Chesterfield Food Bank is looking for volunteers, as well. To learn more visit https://www.chesterfieldfoodbank.org/.
