HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Henrico students who depend on school meals can start picking them up on March 17 .

There will be six sites in Henrico County where students can get "grab and go" packaged meals from 11 a.m. to noon.

"Packaged lunches and breakfasts will be available each school day on a first-come, first-served basis," a Henrico Schools spokesperson announced. "Food distribution is open to all students, regardless of what school they attend, as well as others under age 18."

Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Five schools and the Henrico Volunteer Fire Squad 31 in Sandston will be used to prepare, package, and distribute food:
