The county says the school sites and bus sites will only take place on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. But the meals handed out will include a lunch and breakfast for five days. The students must be present to receive the food.
“Words cannot express my thanks to district staff that came together to make sure that our students don’t go hungry,” said Pasco Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning, who has helped hand out food and visited several sites. “Parents and kids were grateful for the meals that we provided. During this very difficult time, it’s so gratifying to see people coming together.”
