Currently furloughed Rim of the World Unified School District students and their families were able to pick up prepared meals on March 18 at each of the district’s three elementary schools. According to district officials, over 3,612 bags containing nutritious meals were handed out to parents and children who showed up between the hours of 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Valley of Enchantment Elementary School principal Lauren Tovar told The Alpine Mountaineer that over 275 meal bags were handed out to parents, many of whom were accompanied by children, at the Crestline campus.

“The school district is providing typical breakfast and lunch foods served at the schools. We’re doing everything we can to support our students during these unprecedented times,” Tovar said, adding she was waiting to hear from district officials on whether the food distribution program would be a continuing event at the school sites.

Noting that she had just suffered a reduction in income, Crestline resident Sara Jones, who has a kindergartener attending VOE Elementary, said, “It’s wonderful what they are doing here today.”

“I want to thank the school for helping the kids and our family,” said Crestline resident Celsa Wall, who has two children attending Rim High School, one at MPH Intermediate School and one at VOE Elementary School.
