Meal Service Fall 2020.png

Fauquier County Public Schools has expanded its options for meal service this month to meet the needs of families, the school division said in a news release.

Free meals are available to any Fauquier County child between ages 2 and 18 because of a recent U.S. Department of Agriculture decision enabling school divisions to offer free meals to children through Dec. 31.

Hot meals are now available for pickup Monday through Friday at 16 Fauquier County schools. Pre-packaged meal bundles, comprised of five breakfasts and five lunches, are now available to pick up via a drive-thru service at nine schools on Tuesdays and Thursdays and at Brumfield Elementary School on Saturday mornings.  

FCPS will also deploy 14 school buses to deliver meal bundles to 66 locations on Tuesday mornings.
