Schools and Libraries Continue to Provide Meals Over the Summer
Health Policy and Planning staff partnered with Second Harvest of Silicon Valley, the San Mateo County Office of Education, and San Mateo County Office of Sustainability to host a meeting with local school district food service administrators. The purpose of the meeting was to identify challenges that school are facing as they continue to provide meals for students into the summer. Despite the many challenges food service administrators are facing, they are continuing to ensure that students in San Mateo County receive nutritious meals regularly. One of the biggest takeaways from the meeting was that schools want to make sure everyone in the community knows that the meals are available, as they have seen a decline in participation from when students are on campus.
