ADA North East is helping get school meals that include milk and dairy foods to students as schools are closed due to the COVID-19 Quarantine.
To date, ADA North East has provided 220 cooler bags to 23 different school districts in Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania, and five coolers in Yonkers, N.Y., to help distribute perishable items like milk and dairy products to students. We have also provided the schools with paper and plastic bags for transporting grab and go meals.
In addition, ADA North East is sending weekly e-blasts to 1,800 school districts offering resources to help navigate this unprecedented time in school foodservice. Information includes training webinars, grant opportunities and positive affirmation tips, among others.
