NEWPORT NEWS, Va. — Newport News Public Schools have started distributing free meals to their students as some kids start in-person learning while others are at home under virtual schooling.

Starting Monday, the school division will give out meals twice a day at various locations throughout Newport News. This is all a part of an updated meal service plan.

Families can find a location closest to them and pick up a pre-packaged breakfast, lunch snack and dinner for each student.

On Friday, breakfast and lunch meals will also be given out for the weekend. The meals will be distributed through curbside pickup. People only need to open their car trunks and a team member will place the meals inside.

Afternoon curbside service will be available at the following locations Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.:

  • All NNPS Elementary Schools
  • Marshall Early Learning Center

Evening curbside service will be available at the following locations Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.:
