Above, North Branch bus drivers (4.0 Student Services) are pitching- in and bringing bagged meals to a number of disbursement sites in the North Branch District. Bus distribution is from 3 to 4 p.m. daily. The district’s food service program Taher Dining is putting the cold meals together. This photo was at the bus stop at the Countryside Mobile Home neighborhood. No paperwork is required-- just ask the folks staffing the bus for the number of bagged meals you need. Other locations are at Casselberry, the Stacy Trailer Park, in Harris and in Almelund. The word Thursday last week, was that about half the grab n’ go meals, or 250 of 500, were picked up in the first days of offering the service. Participation was growing this week.
Below, anyone on mainstreet in Lindstrom saw this sign-holder trying to pickup peoples’ spirits Monday this week, at the Holiday station corner.
