FALL 2020

I always look forward to the start of a new school year.  I love the crisp morning air, the crunch of colorful leaves, the warmth of September afternoons.  Excited children line up, teen-agers greet friends they have missed over the summer--a fresh, clean, shiny new start! 

Oh—but wait…..  This year is…different.  But some things continue.  Kids still need to eat.  We still need to provide meals.  And so we carry on.  But before we continue on, let’s pause for a moment and look back.

This past year, we have been brave.  We stood, in the cold, on the front lines as essential workers, and bravely provided food for our children and our communities.  And while we were bravely providing for our children, we developed relationships with their parents, and with others in our community.  We listened to their stories, we became part of their stories, and they became part of ours.  We have always had this with the kids we serve in our schools, but now  we have a wider influence, a wider recognition of the importance of nourishing our students. READ MORE
