Arlington Public Schools

APS now provides free grab-and-go breakfasts and lunches at five school sites.

Meals will be provided Monday-Friday at these schools from 11am to 1pm:
Kenmore Middle School, 200 S. Carlin Springs Road
Dr. Charles R. Drew Elementary School, 3500 S. 23rd Street
Barrett Elementary School, 4401 N Henderson Rd
Campbell Elementary School, 737 S Carlin Springs Rd
Randolph Elementary School, 1306 S Quincy Street

APS will provide one lunch for that day and one breakfast to take home for the following day. These meals will be free to any child aged 2 to 18. The child must be present to receive the meals; no meals will be given to parents without the child present.

Meals will be provided to all children without charge and are the same for all children regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability, and there will be no discrimination in the course of the meal service.

Food for Others

Food for Others has distribution sites in many locations. Anyone in need of food may come to one of the neighborhood sites at the times specified on their website. The only question that is asked is, “How many people are in your household?” Please bring your own grocery bags!

Arlington Food Assistance Center

AFAC has multiple food distribution sites on different days, including Friday and Saturday.
