Over the past several months, we’ve been facing a global pandemic. Throughout the crisis, there has been great concern about the meals provided to children at our schools.  “We know that many families rely on our meal programs,” said Sodexo Manager Steve Kosnar.  “We are glad that the United States Department of Agriculture extended our ability to provide free, healthy grab and go meals for any child up to 18 years old.”

 

According to Kosnar, “Since we started on March 17, 2020, we’ve distributed over 170,000 meals.  We have an extensive fall distribution plan in place now and we’re working to be responsive to the needs of our families. Since we’ve added early and late hours at James E. Dottke High School, we’ve been distributing 1,000 meals at that location per day!”

Children do not need to be enrolled in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District or live in the communities we serve to be eligible. Parents or children can drive-through or walk-up to get meals from any site. Meals will be distributed Mondays and Wednesdays. Any child or adult with a child in need of meals is welcome.  

“We are all very proud of our Sodexo staff members.  They have worked hard to make sure children and families get the food they need each day,” adds Kosnar.
