There is a group of frontline workers in Newark who have provided a service as vital as any other. They are the food service workers of the Newark Public Schools who have distributed over 100,000 meals to children during the COVID- 19 crisis.

Led by Executive Director of Food Services Tonya McGill, about 200 workers have shown up day-in and day-out, to make sure thousands of kids who rely on school breakfasts and lunches for daily nutrition remain fed while schools remain closed.
