Students who attend New Kent County Public Schools will receive free meals until Dec. 31, 2020.

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved waivers for local school divisions to extend the Summer Food Service Program for free meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All children will be eligible for the free meals, but a new meal application is required. Only one application is needed per household and can be found at

Once a week meals can be picked up at George Watkins Elementary School (Tue. 3:30-5:30 p.m. or Wed. 7-9:30 a.m.) or New Kent Middle School (Tue. 1-3 p.m. or Wed. 8-10:30 a.m.). For questions and/or delivery options, call 966-8508 or email
