BREAKFAST, LUNCH MEAL DISTRIBUTION TO CONSOLIDATE

BEGINNING APRIL 6

ST. THOMAS, USVI – Effective Monday, April 6, the Virgin Islands Department of Education (VIDE) will consolidate breakfast and lunch distributions in its “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” Feeding Initiative to a once-daily distribution from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Both meals may be picked up at the designated locations during these hours. The move is an effort to minimize staff exposure to the public, provide the convenience of a single pick-up time for parents, and decrease fuel costs for transportation of meals.

This schedule will remain in effect for the duration of the feeding initiative, which is expected to conclude on or before June 4.
