Pasco Schools Expands Feeding Plan To Reach More Students

This post was published on 03/26/2020.

Land O’ Lakes, FL – (March 26, 2020) – Pasco County Schools will dramatically expand the number of student feeding sites next week, starting on Tuesday, March 31. The number of drive-thru sites at schools will expand to 25 – up from 7 this week. Pasco will also add feeding sites at 16 bus stops throughout the county.

There are other significant changes in the way Pasco County Schools is getting food to students. The drive-thru sites and the bus deliveries will take place on Tuesday only. However, the food provided will include a lunch and breakfast for five days for each student. So, for instance, a family with two children would receive 10 lunches and 10 breakfasts on Tuesday. The student(s) must be present to receive food.

“Words cannot express my thanks to district staff that came together to make sure that our students don’t go hungry,” said Pasco Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning, who has helped hand out food and visited several sites. “Parents and kids were grateful for the meals that we provided. During this very difficult time, it’s so gratifying to see people coming together.”
