Jackson Public Schools
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.
