Team No Kid Hungry Tennessee is taking time to thank our school meals heroes, including our own food service director in Oak Ridge Schools, Jennifer Taylor. In their letter to Oak Ridge Schools, they stated,  “We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate our incredible school nutrition staff and their commitment to ensuring that students have the nutrition they need to learn. For over a year, schools across Tennessee have stopped at nothing to shift operations and adapt their meal programs to curbside pick-up, home delivery, and classroom feeding.”

Today, we presented Jennifer with a “School Meals Hero” appreciation plaque, certificate, and “I am a Hunger Hero poster” in recognition of our gratitude for her tireless commitment to food access and educational equity.
