2020-2021 SCHOOL BREAKFAST AND LUNCH 

ANNOUNCEMENTS

*MONDAY, APRIL 12 is a teacher work day so students and kitchen staff will not be in schools. On Friday April 9, breakfast, lunch and supper will be provided for Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday April 9-12, 2021.  You can also request meals for Tuesday April 13th if your child learns virtually on Tuesday April 13 and will not be in the school to get meals. 

To-go meal service to the community at Oakdale Elementary School will be discontinued after Friday April 16. The closest location to pick up to-go meals on Wednesdays and Fridays from 11am-1pm after April 16 is Spring Ridge Elementary School. We will continue to offer breakfast, lunch and supper at OES to students who attend school for cohort A or B on Mondays, Tuesday, Thursdays and Fridays for the remainder of the school year. 

We are excited to announce that the USDA has approved FREE meals for all children 18 years old and younger! 

All FCPS schools serve breakfast, lunch and supper (to-go) for FREE to all children learning in school buildings during the week.

All meals will be individually wrapped or compartmentalized. 

Free breakfast and lunch meals will be available to children while they are in school on cohort A days (Mondays and Tuesdays), on cohort B days (Thursdays and Fridays) or for each day they are in school if they attend in-person learning 4 or 5 days a week. On the days when students are learning in a school building, they can also take a free to-go meal home for supper that same day.

Due to the amount of food being distributed for the remainder of the days, we encourage families who want additional meals for the days when students are not in the school building learning (virtual days at home, weekends, holidays) to pick up the additional meals at the child’s school on a day when they are learning in the building or visit one of the open community sites listed below on Wednesdays and/or Fridays from 11am-1pm to pick up the additional meals.

25 MEAL DISTRIBUTION SITES

Twenty-three FCPS schools listed below will distribute to-go breakfast, lunch and supper meals for FREE from 11am-1pm on Wednesdays and Fridays to ALL children in the community on days when they are not physically in a school building learning.

Two community drop-off sites will distribute to-go breakfast, lunch and supper meals for all 7 days of the week for FREE from 11am-1pm ON WEDNESDAYS ONLY. Meals will be distributed in the shopping center parking lots from a school bus. The locations are listed below as "Community Drop-Off Sites."

  • Children do not need to be present to pick up meals on Wednesdays and Fridays. A parent or other adult can pick up these meals for them.
  • Meals can be provided for all 7 days of the week. 
  • The child does not have to be enrolled at the school. Meals can be picked up for any child at 23 locations on Wednesdays and Fridays and 2 locations on Wednesdays.
