RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – Danville Public Schools is the beneficiary of a new grant from No Kid Hungry Virginia to support after-school meals.
Three school districts across the state each will receive a total of $5,000 in grant funds. Those districts include:
- Danville Public Schools
- Fairfax County Public Schools
- Staunton City School District
The grant will support Danville Public Schools’ after-school meals program which uses a mobile truck to serve free meals and snacks this school year.
The truck, launched in 2019, will help expand Danville’s summer meals program which is free to city school students.
With this grant, the truck will now be able to reach more children with free after-school meals by traveling to different neighborhoods around the city.
Not only will the grant help to provide a supper or snack, but the program will also include enrichment activities by allowing kids to have a safe place to go in the afternoon when parents might be at work.
