Giving Compass’ Take:
• Shawna De La Rosa reports that the Detroit Public Schools Community District is responding to positive employee COVID-19 tests by reducing the number of days they distribute food.
• How can funders help providers stay safe and healthy while maintaining essential services?
• Learn how low-income students are being impacted by COVID-19.
The Detroit Public Schools Community District is decreasing meal distribution days over concerns about employee safety and health after some tested positive for the novel coronavirus, opting to distribute several meals in bulk on Mondays and Thursdays rather than five days a week as originally planned, Chalkbeat reports.
The district is also dropping the number of schools providing meals from 58 to 17. Options are being weighed that would allow food distribution to continue while still keeping the employees safe.
While the state is under a “stay-at-home” order, food distribution services don’t apply. Dearborn Public Schools, for example, will continue to distribute meals as planned, and the YMCA and Gleaners Community Food Bank will continue to provide meals and groceries for families as needed.
