SAN JOSE, CA - The Santa Clara County Office of Education (SCCOE) has partnered with school lunch catering company, My Green Lunch to fulfill its commitment to provide meals to students, families and the community within Santa Clara County.
My Green Lunch provides schools in Santa Clara County with healthy food served to students in environmentally friendly and compostable packaging. While schools are closed due to the shelter-in-place order, My Green Lunch continues to help the community by providing families with healthy, nutritious food.
“We are so grateful to partner with a business that is committed to helping families and the community,” said Dr. Mary Ann Dewan, County Superintendent of Schools at the Santa Clara Office of Education. “Many students and families rely on schools for meal service. With school closure to student attendance, parents and caregivers may experience even more difficulty providing their families with basic needs. My Green Lunch has helped us to respond to that need with healthy food options.”
My Green Lunch meals are prepared fresh from scratch and include fruits and vegetables sourced from local and organic family farms whenever possible. This provides families with non-processed, nutritious meals. Food distribution is available at the SCCOE, Ridder Park location on Thursday and Friday from 11:30am -1:30pm.
The CEO of My Green Lunch, Todd Evjenth, is passionate about his support of families in Santa Clara County. “We are a purpose driven company with a deep passion for helping our community. During these unprecedented times we need to take unprecedented measures. That being said, My Green Lunch has completely shifted our focus from providing healthy school lunches to providing healthy emergency meal relief. The time to unite is now and through a collaborative effort we will ensure emergency meal relief throughout the Bay Area”.
For every $5 donated, 1 free meal will be provided to someone in need. This vital GoFundMe link can be found here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/My-Green-Lunch---Covid19--Emergency-Meal-Program
