Two Ways to Sign Up for Free Meals While Alexandria Schools Closed

ALEXANDRIA, VA – Alexandria City Public Schools are continuing to provide free meals for any child and any family who needs it during the school closures. “It is essential to stay healthy at this critical time,” says ACPS.

There are two ways to access food while schools are closed:

  1. Individual Meals to Go: Any child – whether or not they are eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals – can pick up a meal to go in a bag. Stop by the Chinquapin Drive side of T.C. Williams High School (door 14) between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. to pick up a meal-to-go (8 a.m. – 10 a.m. for breakfast and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m for lunch). You do not need to fill out any forms to pick up a meal-to-go.
  1. Family Meal Packs: You can order a family meal pack online (https://www.acps.k12.va.us/Page/2791) and pick it up at the drive through pick-up point outside Chinquapin Recreation Center (Chinquapin Drive side of T.C. Williams High School, door 14) between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m the following day. If transportation is an issue, please remember to check the box to request free meal delivery.
