Holly Schools Serving Up Over 1,000 Meals a Day to Broncho Families During Crisis

Free meals program part of district’s dedication to serving Broncho community during COVID-19 pandemic

HOLLY, Mich. — Holly Area Schools is providing an average 1,200 free meals daily to families in need across the Broncho community during the continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The district’s dedication to providing free breakfast and lunch to local families in trying times is what Broncho Pride is all about.

“It’s critical that no Broncho goes hungry during this challenging time, and Holly Area Schools is dedicated to ensuring every member of our community has access to healthy, nutritious meals,” said Scott Roper, Holly Area Schools superintendent. “Our food distribution program is what Broncho Pride is all about, and is part of our commitment to a culture of kindness, compassion and respect before, during and after school — especially in times of crisis.”

Meals are available for all students age 18 and under and those with special needs age 26 and under, regardless if they attend Holly Area Schools.

Times and locations for meal pick-up have been adjusted to comply with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order. Free meals are available for pick-up Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with two days of meals on Mondays and Wednesdays and three days of meals on Fridays. The adjusted program will run at least through April 3 at these locations:

Groveland Manor (driveway by pool), 13318 Dixie Highway, Holly, 11-11:40 a.m.

Holly Elementary, 801 E. Maple St., Holly, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Children do not need to be present for a parent to pick up meals. For more information, call Joanne Schebil, director of dining, at (248) 328-3033 or Steve Lenar, Holly Area Schools assistant superintendent of administrative services, at (248) 328-3151.

“I want to personally thank our dedicated food service staff for feeding families in need across our Broncho community while caring for their own families at home during this continuing crisis,” Roper said. “They truly embody the Broncho Difference and demonstrate to our students the importance of giving back to their community, regardless of the circumstances.”
