21st Century School Students Start Receiving Hot Meals

Posted on by

All 21st Century After School students in both school systems will be served hot meals through Second Harvest Food Bank starting Monday, March 2nd, thanks to efforts from Program Director, Anna Bullard, JR TRippe Site Coordinator, Jared Sharpe, and FC Director, Paige Williamson. Every year, students are asked to fill out an end-of-year survey. Last year, many students commented that they wanted more than a snack during after school. “Because of our desire to provide a positive after school experience for students, we began the process of applying for Second Harvest meals in October of 2014,” says Paige Williamson. Meals will be brought in from Savannah daily. Williamson is ” thankful for the partnership that Family Connection has with Vidalia CIty and Toombs County Schools. Schools will provide an employee to serve meals each day.”
