Bluebird Network LLC, Missouri’s second largest internet service provider to schools, has announced in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic that it is continuing its dedication to supporting educational facilities and their students with a $5,000 donation to The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri’s Buddy Pack program. As distance learning rates rise to enable learning to continue while practicing social distancing, the ability for some students to access meals is being affected. Bluebird’s donation ensures that in-need students can still access the meals they require despite schooling interruptions. 

“With schools closing, the dependence on the distribution of quality food through this program has increased,” said Michael Morey, President and CEO of Bluebird. “As the Buddy Packs continue to serve the students’ nutritional needs, Bluebird continues to serve school districts with its internet service. With this donation, we are helping to keep students fed while keeping their schools connected.”
