Meet the Heroes Behind the Meals
Senior Executive Director of the Child Nutrition Program
San Antonio ISD
Hispanic populations in San Antonio have been hit hard by the COVID-19 crisis, but Jenny Arredondo has always seen the faces behind the statistics. “We’re here to feed the kids,” she says, “but talk about a very sobering moment to know you’re feeding kids who otherwise wouldn’t have food at all.” When the pandemic first hit, Jenny sprung into action and led her team in opening 29 meal sites and 65 bus delivery routes to reach kids. Working tirelessly since then, the team now serves 30,000 meals a day.
Director of Nutrition Services
Coachella Valley Unified School District
“For a lot of these children, probably the only healthy meals they get are at school.” A new reality hit Marcus Alonzo when he started delivering meals to isolated families in Coachella Valley—and it drove him to make sure food sites and meal deliveries were accessible to vulnerable kids. In just three days, Marcus inspired his team to shift delivery operations and successfully average 100,000 meals a week.
Family Resource Center Coordinator
For families of children with disabilities, food insecurity is yet another incredibly difficult stressor. Thanks to the unwavering efforts of Nakisha Carter (who coordinated volunteers clocking hundreds of hours), Rockland BOCES doubled the number of families they serve and increased food distribution by over 600%, ensuring nutrition and safety for vulnerable kids.
Director of Food & Nutrition Services
School City of Hammond
“We will feed any kid. We will feed you.” When schools closed in Hammond, Christina Clarahan only had one day to figure out how to feed low-income kids. Thanks to her awe-inspiring determination and even bigger heart, her team moved mountains, serving 2,400 kids a day with only one quarter of their regular cafeteria staff.
Director of Food Services
Silke West does everything in her power to support the tight-knit community of Sinton. When schools first shut down, Silke led her team in setting up curbside meal service with only half a day’s notice. As she noticed pantry staples flying off the shelves, she went out of her way to personalize food distribution menus, ensuring families had the specific comforts they needed, like cereal and milk. Even when Winter Storm Uri hit this past March, Silke was there without a second thought, providing 1,200 hot meals a day to families in need.
