Superintendent Husfelt is pleased to announce a partnership with Bay County Emergency Services/Bay County Commission that enables the meal delivery process to continue this summer. "Feeding children has never been so important," he said, "and I am so excited that we have the support of Bay County and that we can continue this vital service to our community." Husfelt noted that the massive undertaking, which has provided more than 540,000 meals since the pandemic forced the closures of school in March, would not have happened without the commitment of Chartwells K12 and the BDS Transportation and Bay Base teams. "A lot of people have worked really hard on the logistics of this operation," he said, "and I am so grateful to everyone who has played a role in this very large operation."
The Federal program that is partially funding this process requires that meal distribution be limited to children under the age of 18.
