We are providing free meal delivery for all students. This page gives information about what you need to know. 

food tray iconDaily Lunchtime Deliveries

We’ll have weekday deliveries, Monday through Friday, with routes running from 11:30-12:30. Each delivery contains a free hot lunch or sandwich and a breakfast bag for the next morning.  Meals are available to all children up to age 18/CHS. Please see the below routes and delivery locations. If you live near Buford, Walker, or CHS, you can contact your school office to arrange outdoor pick-up. These routes are subject to change. Also, see information below about Virginia’s Pandemic EBT card benefits for those who are approved for free/reduced meals.

Note: There will be 2 sets of meals served on Monday, 11/2 (and no service on 11/3, Election Day). Since many of our schools are both voting sites and meal prep/delivery sites, this decision will allow for smoother election process in the City.
