No Kid Hungry held a nationwide webinar that highlighted back-to-school efforts in tribal communities of how schools are implementing practices to success, fully get meals to kids, review challenges and successes, and explore what are some situations unique to rural and tribal communities. Dee Weber (‘09), School Nutritionist, and Melissa Kee, Food Service Director, represented St. Michael Indian School on the webinar held in late October.
The food service is led by Food Service Manager Melissa Kee, who said: “Serving food for the children has always been important. I was humbled to help parents in the community feed their kids at a time when they couldn’t because they might’ve lost their jobs and been in quarantine. Even though people told me they were afraid to go to places in the community, they felt safe to come get food here from us for their children. That was an awesome feeling. “
The food service meets the challenges of delivering meals by cross training and practicing teamwork. Monday to Friday, the team of four preps and serves.
