FEEDING THE HUNGRY

Don Gosney
By:

Even in the best of times, more than 80% of the students in West County are on the Free and Reduced Lunch Program.  They rely on the breakfasts and lunch they receive from the school district—often with those meals being the only meals they eat each day.

Since COVID-19 has come to rule our lives, ‘the best of times’ are but a memory of the past and a hope for the future.  People aren’t working and paychecks are a thing of the past.  How are parents supposed to feed their children when they have no money?

At 17 sites across West County, Monday through Friday the WCCUSD hands out more than 34,000 meals each day.  On Fridays, they even hand out meals for Saturday.

What the District does is heroic but giving the order from the District offices is one thing but the true heroic efforts come from the people packing the bags and working these sites to distribute the meals that provide the sustenance needed to continue with their virtual schooling.

This is a monumental task that requires a lot of volunteers.

Some of the obvious volunteers at Kennedy High on Thursday May 14th were members of the Richmond Fire Department.  It was impressive to witness the efficiency and dedication to the community that these frontline heroes showed.

    Get ex boyfriend or husband back no matter why he left you with Powerful love spell caster dr unity.
    My boyfriend that left me few months ago just came back to me last night crying for me to take him back. After 3 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started seeing him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called dr unity and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me. and after 28hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started begging me to forgive him and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends.
