MEDINA – The school district is finishing its third week of “Operation Food Drop” and  has been distributing 1,000 to 1,200 meals daily to Medina families.

District administrators have teamed with cafeteria workers and the transportation department to organize the program and get the breakfasts and lunches to children in the community.

“We will continue throughout Easter break and into the foreseeable future,” said Rob Dennis, the transportation director for the school district. “I am very proud of how well our school leadership has come together in these difficult times for us all. Medina Strong, Mustang Strong.”

Dennis praised the cafeteria staff led by Maria Haegerty.
