Meet the Hero Bus Drivers Bringing Lunches — And Hope — To Kids During Coronavirus Quarantine
Angelina Dixon sat in a lounge chair on her front porch shortly before 9:30 a.m. Wednesday sipping steaming coffee and smoking a cigarette.
A 40-foot long yellow school bus pulled up just across the street, a teacher’s aide popped out, hurried over, greeted her warmly and handed her a white, plastic bag. It contained a breakfast pack of a muffin, a box of cereal, a pint of milk and a box juice. It also included a lunch of turkey and cheese cold cuts on a Kaiser roll and chips or Cheez Its crackers.
Dixon’s son received one of about 100 meal bags on Bus P2 as it motored through its daily route around Somers Point and Linwood for Mainland Regional High School, just over 11 miles southeast of Atlantic City.
