Tuscaloosa City and County Schools partner to feed students out of school

Tuscaloosa mayor, superintendent answer questions

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Tuscaloosa City and County Schools are teaming up to feed thousands of students who are out of school now because of coronavirus concerns.

Students were supposed to return to class next week. Coronavirus concerns changed that.

Those school systems came up with a plan to ensure that kids who would normally eat free breakfast and lunch can still do that.

That was part of the focus of a Facebook Live Town Hall that includes Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, Tuscaloosa City Schools Superintendent Mike Daria and others Friday.

The leaders answered questions about coronavirus in the Tuscaloosa area, and they also explained how parents can get food to their kids.

“It’ll be curbside so families come in with their children, birth to 18 years old and we’re able to provide a breakfast or lunch in a bag for every child we see,” Dr. Daria explained. The free drive up feeding program starts Monday morning.

Here’s a list of the times and places they are scheduled to happen:
