Bulldog staff continue to feed children
The Bridgeport School Dietary staff and administrators have been busy this week preparing lunches for students and their younger siblings. With school out for the foreseeable future, and so many parents relying on school meals to carry their kids throughout the bulk of the day, Bridgeport has stepped up to make meals for the kids and have made them available for pick up five days a week from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the school, with a breakfast item included for the following morning. Many parents who normally can purchase food for their children are finding it necessary to pick up the free sack lunches due to a decrease in their own paychecks. With hours cut drastically in many local positions or simply the uncertainty of their own jobs and the future of the economy, parents are grateful for the opportunity for their kids to get a balanced meal. The school is reimbursed at the rate it has been throughout the school year for these meals and parents do not need to pay for the sack lunches. Sonny’s Super Foods generously donated the grocery sacks to make carry out easier.
