I enjoyed a beautiful meal with Mayor Pro Tem Mack Goodman on Tuesday at Meadow Community School in Thornton. Mapleton School District’s Director of Nutrition Service Joella Carron (and staff) not only provided a delicious lunch but also very sobering tales of hunger in Thornton. Thankfully, six of her schools serve meals throughout the summer – with only a 1 week gap before school starts up again! I was impressed to hear that many of the schools don’t have programming yet are committed to being open for the food service. I know with budgets being tight, it’s a hard thing to pull off so THANK YOU! An extra treat enjoyed by all was the duet performed by six year old cousins!
Thanks to Joella for fighting childhood hunger and to Mayor Pro Tem Mack Goodman for his support!
