Local school districts across Hampton Roads are providing students with free meals while public schools are closed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. 

Many students in the region are food insecure and normally rely on free-or-reduced breakfasts and lunches at school. 

Virginia has received a federal waiver allowing schools to serve food in non-congregate settings to help limit interactions between people. Schools are also benefitting from funding from the Summer Meals Program, which helps ensure that children continue to receive nutritious meals while school is out of sessioin. 

Here's where students can find food during the school closures: 


Six schools will provide "grab-n-go" breakfasts and lunches. The meals will be available Monday through Friday on the student bus ramps. They're for anyone 18 years old or younger. Students must be present to receive meals. Delivery locations are organized by time.
