WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 20: An installation of 857 empty school desks, representing the number of students nationwide who are dropping out every hour of every school day, is on display at the National Mall June 20, 2012 in Washington, DC. The installation was presented by not-for-profit organization College Board to call upon presidential candidates who are running for the White House to make education a more prominent issue in the 2012 campaigns and put the nation’s schools back on track.

CMS has introduced an amazing new program that I think is awesome for all students. I remember the first time I realized that for some students, their meal at school is the only meal that they receive and it literally broke my heart.

It’s not that I wasn’t able to see it before, it’s just that it hit me and hit me hard and it was upsetting to know. With the Coronavirus pandemic, things are never going to be the same. With school being virtual, CMS is doing everything thing they can to ensure that students still get their meals. The “Eats At Home” program will provide quite a bit.

There are 40 grab and go locations and there will also be weekly meal bundles available at student bus stops. For students that do no qualify for free or reduced lunch, the weekly bundles are available for $15 per week. Read more about it here.
