The sun was relentless the morning of Monday, April 6 as volunteers passed out free breakfast and lunch meals to Clarke County School District students at Hilsman Middle School. From 10 a.m.-noon, cars pulled up to one of three pick-up locations in front of the school. Parents received three bags — hot, dry and cold food — for each student they had. Volunteers were constantly moving — getting more supplies from the cafeteria, directing traffic, and handing food into cars. These bags had three days worth of food, and on Thursday, volunteers will once again get into position to give out food for the last two days of the week. CCSD families can come to Hilsman or to Oglethorpe Elementary School on Mondays or Thursdays to pick up food. CCSD is also running 16 food delivery bus routes to distribute meals. Since starting the meal distribution service when schools first closed three weeks ago, more than 87,000 meals have been given to students.
