An increasing number of families who have children in the Southern Door School District are benefiting from the lunch program that restarted earlier this week despite the temporary closure of schools statewide. School Superintendent Patti Vickman says that the food is being prepared by A’viands Food Service Management with some staff members at the school actually helping with the delivery of the program. She says the program is running smoothly in the first week, even with the increased demand.
The breakfast and lunches are distributed at the fire departments located in Southern Door and also at the school for pickup. If transportation is an issue for the recipients, the meals are being delivered to the residences, according to Vickman.
