With all the economic and financial issues surrounding COVID-19, I know we have a lot of families in Prince William County and Manassas looking for a little extra help with the grocery bill. Let’s go over some options. If your church/temple/mosque hosts a food pantry event, please leave the information in the comments, too!
First off, PWCS Food Services is changing their distribution plan. Previously, students received breakfasts and lunches for the week. This is being changed to weekly or half-weekly grocery kits. Find details on what is included by clicking here. Kits are FREE to all children 18 years old and under, and include a variety of whole grains, protein, fruits, vegetables and milk designed as a weekly grocery supplement. If parents do not want to bring their children to pickup, they can bring their student ID, homeschool letter from the county, birth certificate, or other proof of their child. Mondays and Thursdays from 12-6 p.m. (If school is closed on a Monday, service will be on Tuesday. Families can also request a pick up if they have transportation issues and live closer to a school not on this list. Details on the PWCS website for that.
