Deb Jeffers and the Food and Nutrition Services team were recently awarded a competitive grant they applied for to help address food insecurity in Salem.

This grant will allow the department to improve the efficiency of meal sites and home delivery to students. SPS Food and Nutrition Services will be able to safely and efficiently provide at least 1,500 meals a day, increase meal delivery to children and families with disabilities or other barriers to meal access, and collaborate with community organizations throughout the district to serve meals to other vulnerable populations.

The food delivery van will also be utilized for community meal delivery through the SPS Food and Nutrition Services’ partnership with Root, a non-profit with a mission to provide young adults with a pathway to independence through foodservice training and employment.

Congrats to the team! This is a huge win for feeding the families of Salem.
