School food service workers throughout Massachusetts and the state were grateful on Friday for continuing to provide take and go food to families who relied on the food during the coronavirus crisis.
Holliston Public Schools even encourage people to dress like superheroes when they take food on Friday, take pictures and send them so workers can be celebrated on social media. They also suggested that people write thank-you letters.
Cafeteria workers have been recognized every year, with this year marking the 8th School Lunch Hero Day, but with the spread of the highly contagious corona virus in the community, officials are urging people to show additional appreciation.
“Our nutrition services team members are always important! “It’s very grateful to have our members help our students and community during these times,” Fitchburg Public School Inspector Robert Jokela said on Twitter.
Brockton Public Schools asks students to make a sign and put it in the car window as a way to show their gratitude.
Fall River Public Schools encourage people to stop by and thank food service workers too.
