DOE Meal Distribution Schedule Announced For V.I. Students

Following territory-wide school closures due to the coronavirus (COVID- 19) pandemic, the Virgin Islands Department of Education will distribute breakfast and lunch to students attending V.I. public, private and parochial schools in its “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” feeding initiative, beginning Thursday, March 26.

In keeping with guidance from local and national healthcare officials that requires maintaining a distance of at least six feet from others, School Food Service workers operating the distribution sites will place packaged meals on tables to be picked up by parents or students in a ‘grab-and-go’ sequence.

Meals will be distributed at designated locations in both school districts Monday-Friday only. Parents and students should visit the distribution site closest to their homes.
