Lompoc Unified Food Service workers are on the frontlines of ensuring the community’s children continue to have access to breakfast and lunch, even with schools closed.
The food service staff are working to provide nutritious food during these uncertain times.
Lompoc Unified School District serves an average of about 3,700 breakfast and 3,700 lunches each day. The food is available at a variety of schools and other mobile feeding locations around Lompoc.
Bus drivers, bus attendants, paraeducators and others brave the unknown to deliver meals to families.
Staff members, equipped with protective gear, are a welcome sight to many of the families who miss seeing the familiar faces at school bus stops, school sites, and school cafeterias.
“We are fortunate to have such student-centered workers,” said LUSD Superintendent Trevor McDonald. “They epitomize our ‘Doing What’s Best for Kids’ mantra.”
