PECPS takes care of families

Prince Edward County Public Schools partnered with both the Longwood Center for Visual Arts (LCVA) and the Virginia Children’s Book Festival (VCBF) for this week’s spring break meal distribution. Food service distribution was held at six different sites throughout Prince Edward County. More than 4,200 meals were given out. At each site families were given art kits and sketch books from the LCVA and books from the VCBF in addition to their meal bags. Parents, teachers and community members volunteered to help the food service staff create and distribute meals and the additional materials.
