Where children can get free meals in Chesterfield and Hanover this summer

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. – Chesterfield and Hanover Schools are participating in the Summer Food Service Program, which provides low-income children with nutritious meals when school is not in session.

The program offers free breakfast and lunch to children up to age 18. The meals are provided based on USDA nutrition guidelines.

No registration is required and meals will be given on a first come, first serve basis.

All meals are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age and disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Kids must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents and guardians are not eligible for the free meal service.

The Summer Food Service Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The Program will also provide free meals in Henrico County this summer.
