[Updated at 12:10 p.m.] Alexandria City Public Schools on Monday will start providing two days worth of free breakfast and lunch meals for any enrolled ACPS student on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 8 a.m. and noon. at five new distribution points.
“Meals consist of cold breakfast and lunch, including fresh fruits and vegetables, salads and sandwiches for multiple days per the student’s need,” ACPS spokeswoman Julie Allen told ALXnow.
T.C. Williams High School will now distribute food as a grab-and-go paper lunch pickup only.
No food distribution will occur on Tuesdays or Thursdays. The limited days for distribution is to support the practice of social distancing and to limit social gatherings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new locations are:
- William Ramsay Elementary School (5700 Sanger Ave)
- Francis C. Hammond Middle School (4646 Seminary Road)
- Cora Kelly School for Math, Science and Technology (3600 Commonwealth Avenue)
- Jefferson-Houston PreK-8 IB School (1501 Cameron Street)
