Free breakfasts and lunches for all: USDA has extended national waivers for all students to continue receiving free breakfast and lunch daily during the 2021-22 school year. Students who bring their lunch from home to school can add a fruit, a vegetable and a milk free. Meals will be available curbside for students learning in a virtual environment. The waivers allow Food and Nutrition Services to provide meals to students at no charge without parents submitting an application. However, if a student has an approved meal application on file, then other benefits outside the school system are available to families in need, such as P-EBT food assistance, reduced or waived internet fees and waived school and testing fees. To receive these benefits, submit an application online for free or reduced-price meals. If you do not have internet access using a smartphone, tablet or computer, then contact Food and Nutrition Services at 804-743-3722. A new application must be submitted each school year; only one application per household is needed. Parents will be notified of the status of their application by email or letter, so be sure your student’s school has the correct email and mailing address on file.
This institution is an equal opportunity provider.
Food and Nutrition Services offers a Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program at Bellwood, Bensley, Chalkley, Ettrick, Falling Creek and Harrowgate elementary schools.
They offer a fresh fruit and vegetable snack to students 4-5 days a week in school. They also provide extra fruits and vegetables to the curbside bags for families to take home.
The information provided in the documents below are student and parent handouts reflecting some of the fruits and vegetables that are offered. The students handouts give nutrition information and some interesting facts about the fruits and vegetables. The parent’s handouts include a recipe and information about how to select and store the fruit and vegetable when purchasing from the store.
The goal of the Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program is to:
Snacks will be eaten in the classroom, along with fun and educational information led by school staff. Children will be encouraged to try the fruit or vegetable snack of the day, but they may choose to not participate if they do not like or cannot eat the fruit or vegetable offered. Please encourage your child to participate in the snack, as this is a great way to show students healthy food choices that are both familiar and new!
