ANN ARBOR – Ann Arbor Public Schools Superintendent Jeanice Kerr Swift announced Tuesday that 2,700 meals were distributed to students on Monday and 5,700 meals on Tuesday.
“We should pause during this challenging time to be inspired,” she wrote in an email update to the AAPS community.
“Many thanks to Liz Margolis who leads this effort, Chartwells food and nutrition partners, Durham bus drivers, AAPD officers, and school principal, teacher and staff helpers who are among the many ‘superheroes’ we are celebrating today.”
Today the Ann Arbor Public School team together with Chartwells and Durham prepared and distributed over 6000 meals for the families of Ann Arbor.
