I hope this communication finds you well. I would like to share that despite some torrential downpours (last week) we still managed to serve a combination of 26,306 breakfast and lunch meals. Thank you to all of the volunteers. It was testimony to your true dedication. We hope to see everyone next week, on Thursday, May 21, from 10:30 am to 11:30 am, at Randall and West, for our food distribution.
Taylor School District is committed to continue serving meals for the rest of the school year, as long as supplies last. We will continue to update you as we receive more information regarding product availability. Please enjoy your weekend. Take care of yourselves and your family members. Remember to demonstrate proper social distancing, and stay Taylor Strong!”
