Jackson Public School District
For many children in our community, the only healthy meals they receive are during the school day. With schools closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the Jackson Public School District (JPS), in partnership with the Mississippi Food Network, quickly stepped up to provide a grab-and-go meal plan for children. The organizations also provided discounted breakfast and lunch options for adults in communities across the city. Community institutions, like schools, play a critical role in response and recovery.

Thank you to the Jackson Public School District for demonstrating compassion and caring during this crisis.
