Impact Saginaw Area Credit Unions have partnered with Sodexo Magic and First Student to provide food to in-need Saginaw students since schools have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Since schools closed in March, Sodexo and First Student have been providing meal deliveries Monday through Saturday to about 2,000 children by bus to their neighborhoods. Impact Saginaw has committed $11,500 to help the organizations in their fight against hunger in the community.
