The Hollister School District is announcing plans to expand on the wildly successful Monday MealDay program launched four months ago. The school district recently surveyed more than 500 parents to gauge their level of support for the Monday MealDay program. The program, which has served more than 600,000 meals since March, will continue to serve meals at all sites. Parents are asked to drive up to the school and retrieve 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches for each child.
Superintendent Diego Ochoa said: “We received a 97% rate of parent support for the Monday MealDay program. The one recommendation we received from many parents was to offer working parents a chance to pick up meals in the late afternoons.”
The district will initiate evening food pick up on Monday, July 27, 2020 at Sunnyslope Elementary. Working parents can drive up to Sunnyslope Elementary to pick up meals between 3:30pm and 7pm.
Superintendent Diego Ochoa said: “Our community owes a debt of gratitude to the men and women that work in our Nutrition Services department. Their leader, Ann Pennington, is an exceptional leader in the field.”
The district will continue with Monday MealDay while students remain home for distance learning. For more information, please contact Superintendent Diego Ochoa at email@example.com.
