Education’s ‘No V.I. Child Goes Hungry’ Program Begins Tomorrow

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The Virgin Islands Department of Education said late Tuesday that it is distributing breakfast and lunch to students attending territorial public, private and parochial schools in its “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” feeding initiative beginning tomorrow.

The action comes amid efforts being taken by the Bryan administration, which has closed schools among other moves to stop the spread of the killer Chinese disease called coronavirus.

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 will place packaged meals on tables to be picked up by parents or students in a ‘grab-and-go’ sequence, D.O.E. said.

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.
