Hanover County Government will continue to make food kits available to the community on Monday, April 27; Wednesday, April 29; and Friday, May 1, at John M. Gandy Elementary School and Mechanicsville Elementary School. The pre-packaged food kits will be available between 11 a.m.-1 p.m. and again from 5-7 p.m. each day. This is a separate and distinct food program from the one being offered to children by Hanover County Public Schools.
The Hanover Education Foundation, working in partnership with Hanover County Government and Hanover County Public Schools, received a generous grant from the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund. The funds will provide 12,500 meals for Hanover County residents and supplement the student meal program and the work of many food pantries and churches. Depending on the demand, the County government will schedule additional dates, as long as supplies last.
Those who need food will be able to drive through designated lanes at the school to pick up the kits, with as little human contact as possible for health reasons. Kits include a ready to eat entrée such as chicken salad, tuna salad, or BBQ beef, a tortilla, bag of chips, granola bar, trail mix, cookie, fruit roll up, and juice box. One box per person will be available.
