Created from a retired school bus in 2015, Marana Cares Mobile offers FREE nutritious and delicious meals to children.

“In many cases our schools provide services to our community that extend beyond classroom instruction,” said Dr. Dan Streeter, Marana District superintendent. “Our Marana Cares Mobile allows us to continue to provide these opportunities to our community during our school breaks. Knowing that nutrition is critical to a child's ability to learn and be successful, this service allows us to meet those needs during school breaks so that our students return ready to learn.”

Marana Cares Mobile is made possible through private donations, corporate sponsorships, charitable foundations and the USDA Summer Food Service Program*.
