However, Alcona Schools is managing to still feed their students with their “Grab and Go” program.Bags filled with breakfast and lunch are prepared by mostly staff volunteers and then sent out on school buses, dropping the food off on their normal routes. Each one comes with fruit, vegetables, grain, meat or meat alternative and milk. “We’re doing approximately 650 people so today we’re making approximately 1,300 sandwiches,” said Lead Cook Sarah Roe.Food Service Director with Alcona Schools, Nicholas Cordes says they’re trying to make sure that every student has what they need. “Each of those kids will receive 3 lunch and 3 breakfast,” he said. “As of last week we’ve had about 7,300 meals we were able to distribute and that was a combination of doing the bus routes and also having a quick grab and go for about 2 hours here last Friday.”Cordes also said these meals are not just for Alcona students and others in the area are welcome to put their name on the list. To find out how to get your family on the list, you can call the district office at (989) 736–6212 or email Cordes at AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona Community SchoolsContinue ReadingPrevious Read Governor Whitmer’s full stay-at-home orderNext Bay Athletic Club trainer demonstrates ways to stay fit during stay-in-place orderlast_img read more
