CBS4: Aurora Public Schools Serves More Than 8 Million Meals To Families During Pandemic

Story excerpt:

"More than eight million meals have been handed out by Aurora Public Schools since the start of the pandemic and not just to their students. On Thursday, those representing the school were outside Aurora Central High School to deliver the day’s second round of grab-and-go meals to students and adults in the community.

'It’s amazing, it helps out so much with giving my kids healthy food,' Monica Barrett said.

Barrett and her husband who live in Aurora have a three-year-old and one-year-old.

'Definitely the fruits and vegetables- they gobble up,' she said.

The school district expanded its summer meal program to include adults using money raised by the Aurora Schools Foundation."
