NWLSD Staff and Families,
Thank you for your support! We appreciate our community and our staff for their hard work. We are so proud of the laborious effort our staff put forth to make this happen. We had an unexpected and an overwhelming turnout at all three building locations. A VERY large number of families in need showed up. We were proud to be able to assist them. All of the food that was prepared for distribution on April 2, was given away. In two hours, we were able to serve over 31,447 meals!
There has been concern about the number of people who were served. NWLSD, like other public schools that are distributing food, have State and Federal mandates we must follow. NWLSD is participating in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO). Due to our high poverty level, we must offer food distribution to ALL children aged 18 and under, residing within our District, to participate. Today’s experience will help us to have a better understanding of what to be prepared for on the next pick-up date.
We have received questions about opening more locations. Please know that we are making decisions based on what we know and understand about guidelines and safety for those distributing and receiving food items. Currently, only Struble, Taylor and Pleasant Run Elementary qualify to serve free meals in the SSO program, which is why we can only distribute food from these locations. As a team, we are working behind the scenes to perfect our method. As we move forward, we will be working with the Colerain Police Department to help with traffic.
On the next pick-up date, we will be restocked.
Please note the upcoming pick-up dates: April 16, April 23 and April 30.
Thank you again to our community for your support!
