MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

This week spring break kicks off for schools in the Marana Unified School District. In most cases, no school would mean no meals for students who receive meal benefits in school, but not in Marana. The Marana Cares Mobile meals are still going to students who need them.

Today, volunteers at Picture Rocks Intermediate School will be making meals for the students. The meals through the Marana Cares Mobile program are part of a partnership between MUSD and the Marana Health Center that aims to improve the lives of some of the district’s students who wouldn’t have access to three meals a day outside of school.

The nutrient-packed meals are part of an ongoing effort to help students learn better by giving them a full stomach so they don’t have to focus on where to get food. More than 5,000 meals have been served since the Marana Cares Mobile program started in 2015.

If you’re looking to get a meal from Marana Cares Mobile this week you have two options. The first is from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the southeast corner of Sandario Road and Anthony Road. The second option, El Tiro Road and Amway from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m.
