Marana Cares Mobile will be providing free meals to children during winter break.

The service offers free meals to students in an air-conditioned/heated mobile facility with interior and exterior serving areas.

The service is scheduled to run December 26-29 and January 2-5 at two different locations.

The first location is on Sandario Road and Anthony Road (southeast corner next to the Marana Congregation of Jehovah’s Witness Church) from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The second location is at 6560 W. El Tiro Road (at the Marana Domestic Water Improvement District).

“Marana Cares Mobile allows us to give more back to our community by doing what is the very best for children. Nutrition and health are critical to a child's ability to learn and be successful. This service allows us to meet those needs during times when students are not at school so they are better prepared to return to school ready to learn,” says Superintendent Dr. Doug Wilson.
Marana Cares Mobile has served 4800 meals since beginning in the winter of 2015.
