A school bus from the First Student fleet will deliver meals to thousands of children in New Haven, Connecticut. The company donated the bus to New Haven Public Schools to provide free, nutritious food to students throughout the summer months.
“As the school year ends, hunger is an issue for many students,” said Area General Manager Lucille Ayotte. “We are proud to support the district by playing a role in providing children in our community access to healthy meals when school is not in session.”
New Haven Public Schools expects the bus to deliver more than 1,000 meals to children every weekday through August 26.
“One of the biggest obstacles for students participating in the summer meals program is simply not being able to get to a participating site,” said Gail Sharry, Food Services Director, New Haven Public Schools. “Because of this donation, we hope to reach more children this year. We can use the bus to deliver meals to parks, playgrounds and other locations where families gather.” To read complete details, click here.
