Jefferson Davis Parish Child Nutrition Feeding Program Update
Message from Superintendent, Kirk Credeur
March 24, 2020
Just wanted to give you an update on our current feeding program. Today we did something a little different. We prepared meals for 4 days, placed them in large bags and handed them out in school drives. It was a huge success. We handed out almost 10,000 meals!!! We will attempt to hand out five days of meals on each of the next two Mondays or as long as we are able to sustain the program. We truly believe that in a three week period we can deliver over 30,000 meals!!!
While most food service programs around the state are discontinuing due to various hardships, our people have persevered to make this happen.
Our school nutrition program employees, administrative staff, and volunteers are amazing!!!!! They truly are committed to making sure the needs of our students are met, and we appreciate them all.
Please stay safe, practice good hygiene routines, and remember that we will be a stronger community and school system after we weather this storm. I know all of our teachers want to return to some type of normalcy and close this year out strong. This time away from their students has strengthened their resolve to return and complete the task we started in August..
