Effective Tuesday, Oct. 13, the St. Croix Central High School will begin meal distribution, and the Rudy Krieger Ball Park in Estate Sion Farm will cease distribution of meals in the Department of Education’s “No V.I. Child Goes Hungry” Feeding Initiative.

Breakfast and lunch may be picked up at all distribution sites beginning at 9 a.m., Mondays through Fridays, until supplies last. Meals will not be served on holidays or weekends.

Meals are available to public and non-public school students whose schools are providing instruction virtually. Non-public schools operating with students attending in-person classes will continue meal collection/pick-up as normal from their public-school kitchen distribution site.

Parents or guardians picking up meals should note the following:
