Weekday Meal Delivery at Locations Throughout City, 11am-noon

Charlottesville City Schools is delivering breakfast/ lunch bags to children up to through CHS. The Monday/Wednesday deliveries will be available from the hours of 11am-noon at locations throughout the city.  Families can go to the location that is closest to them. Parents are not required to be present in order for their child to receive a bag, but it is helpful since children will be carrying multiple days’ worth of food — bring an adult or at least a backpack.

We are required to follow federal guidelines for food delivery. Therefore:

  • Each bag is designed to serve  one school-aged child for several days
  • One bag per child age 18/CHS and under — the child must be present to claim the bag
  • If your child cannot come to the site, let your server know
  • One bag per child per delivery day (though bags will contain multiple days’ worth of food)
