TOPEKA, Kan (WIBW)-- “We’re trying to fill the gap and help any way we can” said Martin Weishaar with Pauline Central
Just because school isn’t in session doesn’t mean Pauline Central will let their kids go hungry.
“Starting on day one of the the Pauline School closure, we were able to provide breakfast lunch and food to go for students and I think we’ve been doing about six hundred meals a day”
It’s not just their own students that they’re providing for.
“I’m excited to announce that starting tomorrow we’ll be adding Auburn Elementary and Washburn Rural High school starting tomorrow and that’ll be from 10:30 to noon and I believe those are grab and go so people can pull up curbside and just pick those up”
It’s not just lunches that the school is providing for students, martin Weishaar with Pauline Central says they are looking to provide other services as well.
“The other things we’re looking at is additional ways we can meet the student’s needs and I think that at this point a plan to get us to the end of the school year, there is considerations on the table and we’ll let parents know as soon as we come up with other ways but right now we’re getting creative and trying to figure out a way to get those services and supplies and meals to students.”
Grab and go meals are available free of charge to any child age 1 to 18 from any of these drive-up locations.
