Sonnyside of the Farm--USDA’s Meals 2 You Partnership in Feeding Rural Kids

Thu, 06 Aug 2020 09:41:44 CDT

Sonnyside of the Farm--USDA’s Meals 2 You Partnership in Feeding Rural Kids On this month’s episode of The Sonnyside of the Farm, we’re talking with Denton McLane, Chairman of McLane Global and Grace Norman, Chief of Staff at the Baylor University Collaborative on Hunger and Poverty. We are talking about a heroic partnership that sprang up in March between Baylor, McLane Global, PepsiCo, and USDA to help feed kids in rural America who have been impacted by school closures due to the Coronavirus.

When schools closed back in March, USDA issued waivers to ensure kids were still able to pick up their breakfast and lunches from school. However, there are many kids who live in rural America where it takes a long time and many miles to pick up their meals.

Together we have delivered over 25.5 million meals to kids across America to ensure the millions of kids USDA feeds during the school year continue to have the nutritious food they depend on.
