The Virgin Islands Department of Education will operate its “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” Feeding Initiative from Jan.13-21, as it continues to provide nutritious meals to students during virtual learning.

Parents may pick up breakfast and lunch at the school closest to their homes between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., while supplies last. Meals will be distributed only from designated schools; community distribution sites will no longer operate.

There will be no meal distribution on the Jan. 17 Martin Luther King Day holiday.

When students return to in-person learning on Jan. 24, they will receive daily meals at their respective schools as part of the traditional School Lunch Program. Students enrolled in the Virgin Islands Virtual Academy may pick up meals at the school with which they are associated.
