Gwinnett bus drivers take dutiful approach to meal deliveries

The coronavirus known as COVID-19 prompted the Gwinnett County Public Schools to instruct teachers and students to stay home beginning March 16, but GCPS cafeteria staff and transportation staff at its 68 school sites keep providing necessary free lunches that some Gwinnett kids and their families rely on.

GCPS isn’t the only district in the state, or even the county, delivering meals, but it’s doing it on the largest scale. The district delivered or served more than 137,000 meals during the first week of Digital Learning Days.
