Welcome to the Child Nutrition Program.
MEAL DISTRIBUTION INFORMATION
For Immediate Release: September 8, 2020
School Meals at No Charge for All Children
Effective immediately, Washington County Virginia Schools will be serving meals at no charge to children 18 and under. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Summer Food Service Program to provide meals to children in the community free of charge through December 31, 2020. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.
Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
Meals will be provided, on a first come, first served basis at the following times and locations:
All Washington County Virginia Schools – Tuesdays & Thursdays – 3:00pm to 6:00pm
Hayter’s Gap and Mendota library parking lots – Tuesdays & Thursdays – 5:00pm to 6:00pm
Please remain in your vehicle, this is a drive-thru service.
In the event you have children attending more than one school, meals may be picked up at one location.
Meal distribution schedules will change, when our District transitions from all virtual learning to the
in-person hybrid model of instruction for students.
Should there be additional food needs or backpacks, please contact

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.
The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to Students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
