When our communities needed them more than ever, school nutrition departments across the state stepped up in incredible ways to support all students – whether learning in the school building or remotely. Because of them, thousands of kids throughout Alabama have remained nourished during the crisis.

The pandemic has upended school meal programs as we know them. As schools have adjusted to remote learning, hybrid models, and/or changes within the building to keep students and staff safe, school nutrition departments have had to work quickly to make sure meals are also adapting to these changes and are available for every student.

These frontline hunger heroes – school nutrition and transportation professionals, community leaders, administrators, teachers, and volunteers – have done everything they can to ensure that kids continue to have access to meals. They’ve worked tirelessly, often for longer shifts and without days off. They’ve also found creative ways to get meals to kids, distributing weekly bags of fresh produce, providing curb-side meal pick-up, and even hopping on school buses to deliver meals directly to kids’ homes. These hunger heroes have shown tremendous dedication to the kids they serve, all while juggling mounting stress and uncertainty in their own lives.
