Livingston Parish Public School system’s food service employees obtained pre-packaged meals that LPPS employees and volunteers will distribute to families throughout the parish, according to LPPS Superintendent Joe Murphy.
Each pre-packaged meal bag contains five lunches and two breakfasts, and LPPS staff packaged 6,000 meals, according to LPPS.
The district discontinued its drive-through meal service Sunday after Gov. John Bel Edwards issued a stay-at-home order in response to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in Louisiana.
“This opportunity provides us with a much safer, more efficient way to get food to our people, so we felt confident in moving forward with this plan,” Supervisor of Child Nutrition Sommer Purvis said.
