Culinary Staff provides daily hot meals for students

Last week I had the opportunity to volunteer to hand out lunches at Alisal Elementary. Each day during the pandemic, the PUSD Culinary staff prepare a hot meal for students and parents come to the school and are able to pick up lunches for their kids.

I don’t know if there are requirements or what they are, but they have been working every day during the pandemic at their school sites. Sandra, who is the supervisor at Alisal and her crew do an amazing job, they are so friendly and welcoming, working hard to have everything ready each day for pickup by the parents.

Apparently, this happens at seven of the PUSD sites, all under CDC guidelines.
Friday when I was there, they passed out 180 lunches, parents had the choice of cheeseburgers or veggie burritos for their kids. They staff it with their own workers, except on Fridays, when they pass out lunches for the weekend, plus the groceries, so we’ve been able to help on that day with our missionaries at a couple of the sites, occasionally, they have a conflict and it gives us the opportunity to substitute and see these amazing ladies in action.

Kudos to these hard-working ladies for continuing to feed the kids during the pandemic.
