The V.I. Dept. of Education will operate its “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” Feeding Initiative from Jan. 13 on St. Croix and on the 18th of the same month in the St. Thomas-St. John District. Earlier today, the department said the feeding initiative would commence on Jan. 13 territory-wide through Jan. 21, but D.O.E. produced an update Wednesday night informing of the change.

Parents may pick up breakfast and lunch at the school closest to their homes between the hours of 9:30 a.m.–11:30 a.m., while supplies last. Meals will only be distributed from designated schools; community distribution sites will no longer operate. 

There will be no meal distribution on the Jan. 17 Martin Luther King Day holiday. 

When students return to in-person learning on Jan. 24, they will receive daily meals at their respective schools, as part of the traditional School Lunch Program. Students enrolled in the Virgin Islands Virtual Academy may pick up meals at the school with which they are associated.
