2 Calif. schools to pilot supper program
The school board unanimously approved the California district’s pilot, which is set to start this fall.
“It wasn’t really a question of what we should do,” Sarah Doherty, director of child nutrition services for the district, told Monterey County Weekly. “We knew we had to feed these kids.”
Many of NMCUSD’s students spend close to 12 hours a day at school, Doherty says, and 83% qualify for state assistance.
The pilot will be open to all students under 18, and is slated to provide 55,000 meals between fall and spring.
