Rocky Mountain PBS: “I love making a difference in their life:” Free meals available to APS students for fall semester

Story excerpt:

"Wendy Gordillo knows the importance of school lunch for students, especially at South Middle School, where she is kitchen manager.

'I loved the school lunch and hanging around with my friends. That’s what my favorite memories of school were,' said Gordillo, who actually attended South Middle School when she was a kid.

When Rocky Mountain PBS stopped by South Middle School to get a look at the food pick-up, Gordillo’s team had already met their goal of giving out 100 meals to families.

According to APS director of nutrition services Shannon Solomon, 1.8 million meals were distributed to families from March 17 to August 14. 'My team is incredibly proud of being out there every day,' Solomon said."
