Feeding kids during school closure

Many students in the Ocean Springs School District rely on their school lunches each day. With the recent school closures due to the Coronavirus, there are many families unsure of how they will feed their children lunch.

This is why Ocean Springs School District Special Education Teacher Ann Fallo and other volunteers have put together 300 sacked lunches for the kids in Ocean Springs.

The lunches were distributed today from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All students were welcome to get a bagged lunch. “We all know that there are multiple families in our school district that really rely on the school district for meals, both breakfast and lunch. So it was heavy on my heart to do something about that. In an emergency situation like that you kind of see that there is a need and you jump to meet the need.”

Fallo will also be teaming up with St. Paul’s Methodist Church for their Backpack Buddies program which will distribute food every Tuesday that school is out.
