The Van Wert City Schools Food Services department would like to thank Tecumseh Packaging Solutions and Leland Smith Insurance Services/Erie Insurance for their generous donations that helped provide meals to students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Tecumseh Packaging donated nearly 2,000 boxes that were used to pack and distribute meals, and the monetary donation from Leland Smith helped offset the cost of additional packaging supplies.
The VWCS Food Services department is grateful for the 28 staff members who worked tirelessly to make, pack, and distribute Grab-and-Go meals for students during the state-mandated school closure from March 23 – May 22. VWCS was able to serve 24,420 Grab-and-Go meals to students during this time.
