If you know of a child or family who are going without food right now, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a student enrolled in school and your family is experiencing food insufficiency, please contact your school's counselor so that they may help you. We recognize that with so many families experiencing the financial impacts of this pandemic that state sponsored food programs such as CalFresh are experiencing a far higher volume of requests than usual and have fallen behind in their processing times. As distance learning resumes and continues into the fall, meal pick up programs at MUSD and FBUSD are open to all children ages 0-18 through December 21.
