WARSAW — Between March 16 and March 20, WCS Food & Nutrition, in partnership with WCS Transportation, prepared and delivered over 4,000 meals to seven school locations.
The locations included door-to-door deliveries for families unable to drive to one of the site locations, said a news release from Warsaw Community Schools.
Marci Franks, Director of Food and Nutrition said, “We are simply overwhelmed with the outpouring of support from WCS and the community in making sure no child goes hungry as a result of schools closing.”
“To all who played a part in this, thank you so much for making it possible for our children to receive these meals,” she said.
All children receive a healthy breakfast and lunch each day. Meals are available to all children up through age 18. Meal service will continue Monday through Friday until school resumes.
On Saturday, March 21, Marci Franks announced a revised plan for meal pickup and door-to-door meal delivery.
Curbside meal pickup increased daily and is expected to grow in the coming weeks. Beginning Monday, March 23, in addition to school sites, WCS will add ten new neighborhood sites.
Door-to door meal delivery is available to families unable to drive to one of the sites. Three dedicated routes have been added for this purpose only.
Due to increased requests for door-to-door delivery, new procedures are now in place to expedite the process. Instructions with the link to a Google form have been created. The form provides necessary details including the USDA consent information each household must now provide.
As Franks and her team respond and adapt to the needs of families in our community, site locations will be subject to change. Visit https://www.wcsfoodandnutrition.org/ for more information and forms. View the form for door-to-door meals here.
