ReSource Ware Donates $1,000 to Ware Public School System to Provide Food to Students During Pandemic Closure

Chris Lowe, Facility Manager, ReSource Waste Services of Ware

The Ware Public School system ceased in-person instruction on March 16, 2020 due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Because many of its students were still in need of free lunches, the district instituted a “grab and go” lunch service at Ware Middle School for students under the age of 18. ReSource Waste Services of Ware (ReSource Ware) today contributed $1,000 toward that food program.

“The COVID crisis will push more and more people into financial need,” said ReSource Ware Facility Manager Christopher Lowe. “Our business is deemed to be an “essential business” during the pandemic, so we will be able to continue to operate and employ local citizens. It is important for us to serve our neighbors in need — not only to help them dispose of their waste as they clean or renovate their properties, but also to step in during unprecedented times like these when people may be losing their jobs and finding it difficult to serve nutritious meals to their children.”

Jeff Nicholas, director of the Ware Public School District food service program, said the district was grateful for the ReSource Ware donation to the Ware Public School system: “We thank ReSource for providing financial support to the Ware Public Schools Food Service Department. It was greatly appreciated and helped offset the rising cost of food and supplies during the pandemic.”
