FITCHBURG– The 2020-21 academic year began like no other, therefore to make a challenging beginning a little easier for trainees and families, Monty Tech revealed that all trainees would be eligible for complimentary breakfasts and lunches– a relocation applauded by parents and guardians throughout the district.But what about
those students who picked to learn from house on the remote learning plan? How could they take advantage of this remarkable advantage? On Monday, Oct. 5, Monty Tech expanded the complimentary meal program to now consist of those trainees, through a basic registration and pick-up procedure.
Relying on the school’s brand-new Food Service Director, Jason Yeagle, whose talents and organizational abilities would be important to the program’s success, the Monty Tech management group established a registration type, sent it out to all trainees, and promoted the chance through different social networks outlets.
With 299 trainees registering in the first week of the roll-out, Yeagle makes sure the program will expand in coming weeks.
“Once trainees see the quality and contents of each bag, we hope word navigates and they convince their buddies to offer it a shot. This is food we are happy to use and we hope every trainee takes advantage of this chance that the United States Department of Agriculture, the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and our team are enabling,” Yeagle said.
So frequently, Monty Tech calls on our partners in company and industry, whether to utilize a recent graduate, offer guidance in technical education curriculum, or perhaps to make a tool or devices donation.
So it came as no surprise when the school’s most consistent and generous donors, Ashok Hingorany and his better half Achla Bahl Madan, found out about the remote knowing meal program and asked how they may assist.
Monty Tech’s MCJROTC Instructor Paul Jornet said about the aid: “Without doubt, Ashok asked what we needed. I said a big refrigerator, and he made it occur. Preparing big insulated totes filled with five days worth of food, distributing them to numerous trainees just needs area we did not have. Without their fast response and the extra refrigeration area, this program would not be possible.”
Superintendent-Director Sheila Harrity reviewed the donation, the program, and the significant impact this food will have on households across the 18 cities and towns comprising the Monty Tech district.
“This is a bumpy ride for families and trainees. Individuals may not be working or making what they had in the past, and schools that were as soon as something constant that kids might rely on, now look and feel so different. This program is an excellent example of offering back, and acknowledging that we are all in this together,” Harrity stated.
Monty Tech is home to an exceptionally devoted and skilled food service group, typically recognized for the high quality and fresh food used in the lunchroom. Now, in addition to preparing and serving approximately 3,000 meals weekly, they are also filling hundreds of bags with fresh fruit, produce and baked items, milk, orange juice, frozen meals and ready-to-eat options. The objective was to offer food our trainees would want to consume while at home, Yeagle says. “I think we have actually done just that! We will fine-tune the menu every week, and include a list of contents, dietary details, and recommended preparation info. We wish to make it easy on everybody, assisting any way we can.”
