School meals offered for free

Prince Edward County Public Schools will serve 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 Dec. 31.

The new school year allows Prince Edward County Public Schools to serve all students (elementary, middle or high) free breakfast and lunch under the Community Edibility Provision or CEP. Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
