Group of SodexoMAGIC employees in the kitchenRoanoke City Schools has been delivering close to 75,000 meals a week to students and their families. 

Roanoke City Schools appreciates the hard-work and dedication of our employees, as well as SodexoMAGIC and Durham School Services.  Our children and parents are forever grateful. 

Here are some of the emails we have received from parents:

I just wanted to drop you a Thank You note for everything that the city schools have been doing to support students during this crisis. I can't tell you how much it is appreciated. We are beyond fortunate to live in such a loving community. Thank you again!

A heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone single RCPS employee working so hard for the needs of our students during this unprecedented time. Please pass on my gratitude! 

Just wanted to say thank you to all the Roanoke City employees and bus drivers who have been working so hard to make sure no child goes hungry and that every child has an opportunity to continue education during this time. We greatly appreciate all you have done!

Thank you for providing these meals for the kids. They were so excited to walk to the bus today just to get out of the house! We truly appreciate all the hard work the schools do to take care of our kids
