TUCSON, Ariz. — Spring Break is approaching and Marana Unified is getting ready to make sure students can still get a meal during the school break.

From March 16th through 20th, the Marana Cares Mobile will be at select locations to offer free, nutritious meals. The air conditioned/heated mobile facility is handicap accessible and also offers wi-fi, Chromebooks and literacy encouragement for children.

“Marana Cares Mobile allows us to give more back to our community by doing what is the very best for children. Nutrition is 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 Dr. Doug Wilson, Marana District Superintendent.

The spring break schedule is as follows from March 16-20th, 2020.

  • 11:00AM-12:00PM Sandario Road and Anthony Road (southeast corner next to the Marana Congregation of Jehovah’s Witness Church)
  • 12:30-1:30PM 6560 W. El Tiro Road (at the Marana Domestic Water Improvement District).
