Updated: free summer meals for Chesterfield children

Posted on

Several details about meal times and locations changed after information about summer meals was released June 13. This news release provides updated information.

Chesterfield County schools are among the places offering free summer meals for children who are 1-18 years old. Because of federal changes, the summer meal program will look a bit different this year:

·         Children must be present to receive meals, and meals must be eaten on site. Food cannot leave the building.

·         There will not be any curbside pickup sites.

·         If you have questions, call Chesterfield Food and Nutrition Services at 804-743-3717.

At summer school sites, breakfast and lunch will be available Monday through Thursday from June 27 through July 21, unless otherwise specified in the list below. Sites will be closed July 4.

·         Children who are not attending summer school can check in at the school’s front office. Meals are first come, first served.

·         Texting “food” or “comida” to 304-304 provides information about nearby meal sites.

·         Additionally, the Chesterfield Food Bank distributes food: cfboc.org/getfood.

Here are details about meal locations and times:
