LCPS Summer Meal Program Revised to offer Meal Pick-Up and Additional Food Distribution Site 


Loudoun County Public Schools will expand the summer food program serving food-insecure students and families to include a distribution site at Leesburg Elementary School and the ability to pick up a week’s worth of meals. LCPS officials worked closely with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to receive waivers allowing expansion of the summer feeding program and allowing meals to be picked up by parents or guardians rather than consumed on-site. 


The new program is as follows: 


Meal kits can be picked up at Park View High School, Leesburg Elementary School, Rolling Ridge Elementary School, Sterling Elementary School and Sugarland Elementary School on Mondays, from June 27 - August 8 between 9:30 and 11 a.m. (while supplies last). Meal kits, distributed for children ages 18 and younger, will include breakfast and lunch for 7 days. There is no requirement that the food be consumed on-site - it is for pick-up only. This new program replaces previously announced times and information. Please note Leesburg Elementary has been added as a pick-up location.

“LCPS has consistently advocated on behalf of students who face food insecurity. We believe that meals should be as accessible as possible, which is why we contacted VDOE to fight for additional waivers to provide food to the most vulnerable children in our community,” stated Dr. Scott A. Ziegler, Superintendent. “Our School Nutrition staff worked hard to provide as many benefits to our community as possible.”


Though half the size of neighboring Fairfax County Public Schools, LCPS will have an equal number of summer food distribution sites available to the community.
