Vestavia Hills City Schools partners with Leadership Vestavia Hills to continue school meal service through spring break

March 18, 2020 -- Vestavia Hills City Schools is pleased to announce a partnership with Leadership Vestavia Hills to ensure students continue to be fed during spring break.

Leadership Vestavia Hills’ Hunger Awareness Project will provide meals to students who may need them, March 23-27 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., while VHCS students and staff are on spring break. 

Families can pick up meals next week at the same locations where food pickup is taking place this week: Vestavia Hills Elementary West (for students along the U.S. 31 corridor) and Vestavia Hills Elementary Cahaba Heights (for students in Cahaba Heights, Dolly Ridge, and Liberty Park communities). Girl Scouts of Vestavia are also providing snacks for students during meal pickups.

Hunger Awareness Project organizers are partnering with local restaurants to provide meals and are requesting donations from the community to support the participating restaurants.

Anyone requesting more information about the project can contact Shelley Gentle with Leadership Vestavia Hills at (205) 441-6350 or shelleygentle@gmail.com

Vestavia Hills City Schools last weekend announced a closure of schools until Monday, April 6, to coincide with Gov. Kay Ivey’s declaration of a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. The school system began school meal pickup service on Tuesday, March 17.
