Richmond County Meal Distribution
To help the community take the virus outbreak advisory seriously, Richmond County schools are providing meals while schools are closed, hoping it aids to relieve parents from worrying about food for their kids. Meals are available for children ages 2 – 18 and children must be present to receive distributed meals. If you need meals to be delivered to your home, you can visit the website to find a list of organizations to contact at www.rcboe.org/coronavirus. The RCSS Drive-Through Meal Programs are offered 11 am – 1 pm, Monday through Friday. Meal sites are listed on the website.
Richmond County is seeking assistance from community partners and churches to help with the deliveries. Please contact Dr. Dana Bing, 706.829.9615, to find out how to help. There are also needs for:
- Clean, large boxes to transport meals
- Small bags or boxes for individual meal distribution
