LANSING, Mich. — The Williamston Community Schools is one of many school districts that are ready to provide food for students and families of kids in their schools, especially as schools are not in session.

With Governor Whitmer closing schools for three weeks, not only are kids missing out on their education, there are also many kids that are missing breakfast and lunch. For these students, going to school is a way for them to have reliable food every day and without it, they are at even further risk in our Mid-Michigan communities.

Schools like the Wiliamston Community Schools quickly came up with a plan to prepare to continue serving these students.

Last night FOX 47 News spoke with Dr. Adam Spina, Superintendent of the Williamston Community Schools about their plan, and how other districts are also answering the call.
