The Roaring Fork School District has been delivering grab-and-go meal bags to students since spring break. In Glenwood Springs, there are two bus routes, a pick-up location at Glenwood Springs Elementary School, and multiple parent pick-up locations. The kitchen staff at GSES prep and make enough meal bags for around 600 students, each bag containing 2 meals for breakfast and lunch.

Mike Kosec fills totes with grab-and-go meal bags early Tuesday morning before they are placed on school buses to be delivered to students later in the morning.
