First off, thank you to all participating families who have been coming by our meal pick up over the last month. The turnout has been tremendous and truly supports our children as well as our program. In the last four weeks, we have seen over 70,000 meals go out the door! We have determined that meal pick up and home meal kit delivery is the SAFEST and most efficient way to get meals to our student body. Please note we will continue through the upcoming models and until guidance is released to safely feed students in an unrestricted setting in our cafeterias.
