Workers found a way to supply 25 thousand free meals a week to students and their families.The silence that fills the usually buzzing snack bar at Woodrow Wilson High School in Camden, New Jersey can feel deafening. That is until Arlethia Brown strolls into the space.”We have down days as everybody does, what task isn't stressful, ideal? She strolls through the door, she has a smile, loud voice, always hi, how you doing? She's always bubbly, she cheers us up as quickly as she strolls through the door,” stated Shantae Wise, a chef with Camden City School District.She is part of a 50-person team preparing

25,000 meals a week for trainees and their households in Camden. She says when the pandemic started and schools closed

, a great deal of the kids they serve would not have access to healthy meals.The school district has 16 different meal pickup sites around Camden to make the food accessible to every area. If for some factor somebody can't pick it up, then Brown will hand-deliver.
