Mansfield City Schools and Sherman Elementary were recently recognized as the Children's Hunger Alliance Weekend Meal Program of the Year at their annual Menu of Hope event held last Wednesday, March 1.
The Children's Hunger Alliance is a non-profit organization that has supported Sherman Elementary's Adopt-A-School program this year along with one of their community partners, Sutton Bank. The Adopt-A-School program provides free weekend meal boxes for Sherman Elementary students on a weekly basis.
A few highlights about the boxes:
- Boxes are given out every week (usually on Fridays) before students leave for the weekend. All food provided is shelf stable and ready to eat.
- CHA has provided over 12,000-weekend meal boxes for students at Sherman Elementary school this year alone.
- Each box contains 5 meals - 3 dinner/lunch meals and 2 breakfast meals per weekend.
