    Hundreds of Grand County families received a free 25-pound box of produce this week when they showed up at HMK Elementary to pick up school lunches for children.

    Create a Meal, a Texas-based charity, donated the 75,000 pounds of vegetables on Monday, the first day of the last week of the Grand County School District’s summer lunch program.

    Alyssa Packard, the district’s newly hired director of child nutrition, organized the delivery. “I’m glad to be here,” she said. “Food service should work with the community and this is a good way to show that.”

    The boxes were handed out to a line of people in cars that extended from the school all the way down 400 North.

    Most of the boxes contained the same goodies: onions, apples, watermelon, celery, lettuce, cantaloupe and more.
