After school closes June 24, Richmond Public Schools will still serve free breakfast and lunch at six schools to ensure students are not hungry most of the summer, it has been announced.
The RPS’ summer meals program will launch June 29, and continue through Aug. 3, at four elementary schools and two middle schools, the school system stated.
Breakfast will be from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m., and lunch will be 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at Cardinal, Linwood Holton, Miles Jones and Woodville elementaries and at Albert Hill and River City middle schools, according to RPS.
City Hall has not announced its summer meals operation, but in the past, recreation and centers and other locations have been used as distribution sites.
Also, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which finances summer meals programs, is seeking to make finding locations easier with its USD Meals for Kids Site Finder located online at fns.usda.gov/meals4kids.
Parents or guardians seeking sites can also text summer meals to (914) 342-7744 or call 1-866-348-6479 to find a site close by.
