Kosher Meal Distribution Program Update
Hello West Hempstead Families,
We wanted to update you on the current status of the discussions about establishing a kosher meal distribution program in West Hempstead. The West Hempstead School District administration has had several conversations about such a program with its food service consultant, the State Education Department (SED), the Lawrence School District, and Mr. Dan Mitzner, Director of State Political Affairs for the Teach Coalition, among others. Neither the District nor its food service management company has kosher facilities, so we will need to work with a catering company that can provide kosher meals. We do not yet have SED approval to run such a program, but we are working diligently to make this a reality in West Hempstead for our residents. We appreciate your patience and will keep you updated as we receive more information.
