Utilizing School Bus Routes to Deliver Meals to Families in Need

The COVID-19 pandemic has unveiled the inequities that exist within our communities. During this crisis, school districts and community organizations can work together to ensure that children and families across Allegheny County do not go hungry. However, as more and more people become infected with COVID-19, and as social distancing measures increase, the ability for school districts and community organizations to staff and maintain a site to distribute school meals becomes difficult. As the pandemic continues and mobility options decrease, it also becomes increasingly difficult for children and families to travel to obtain meals. By working in partnership with school districts, community organizations and school bus providers, Allies for Children, Mobility21 & Metro21 will reimagine the school bus routes to deliver school meals to children and families within Allegheny County.
