School authorities said that over 1,000 families were given dinner packs on Monday by Kern High School District staff, volunteers, and community partners.
The giveaway included ten days of food and is planned to ensure KHSD understudies have access to satisfactory sustenance during the holiday break, which began this week.
The cars started arranging about an hour before the planned 10 a.m. start time. The event proceeded for around two hours later its planned ending time because of the demand, as indicated by authorities.
The operation was upheld by the region’s Nutritional Services financial plan, gifts from not-for-profit associations like Nourishing Neighbors, No Kid Hungry, and Albertson’s charitable establishment, as indicated by Erin Briscoe-Clarke, a representative for KHSD. She portrayed the day as an “all-hands-on-deck” collaboration with innumerable volunteers.
Every car that passes by the area’s Regional Occupational Center could get four packs containing breakfast, lunch, and supper things, just as snacks. Roughly 5,000 sacks were disseminated, she added.
