In light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and Virginia schools being closed, the Cover 3 Foundation, which is headquartered in Franklin, has begun providing breakfast and lunch for children at the following sites effective immediately through Friday, April 3:

• Cover 3 Foundation, 125 S. College Drive, Franklin.

• Sussex Elementary School, 21392 Sussex Drive.

Breakfast and lunch, to include milk, will be provided together at each location from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. The meals will be distributed via pick-up-and-go.

Participation requirements are the same as those for Cover 3’s Summer Feeding Service Program, meaning children must live in an area where 50 percent or more students are eligible for free or reduced-price school lunches. This is regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
