Magnolia ISD’s transportation and child nutrition departments recently teamed up to better serve our students and families by providing meals through specific bus routes. Staff from both departments are working together, packing meals, and delivering both at our pick-up campuses and directly into our neighborhoods.
“Watching our staff come together to serve our students shows their commitment to helping others during this pandemic,” said Executive Director of Support Services Joe Dives. “They have been working hard to ensure our students have healthy meals and now we are able to reach even more students and families because of this partnership and these route deliveries.”
Thanks to a donation from Dairy Max and it’s dairy farmers, the district received five Yeti coolers for storage of cold items, especially milk, during these structured bus route deliveries. This donation totaling $2,000 helps provide essential nutrition that these students deserve.
To date, Magnolia ISD is providing on average 14,000 meals per week. Student meals will continue through the month of June. For the months of July and August, families are encouraged to find meals nearby using the following information:
