Aramark has provided Midway students and staff with nutritious meals for decades and has been a faithful partner in the education and care of our students. During the past 11 years, Aramark has expanded this support to a partnership with Aramark’s Baylor Dining Services to provide a full service meal for Midway ISD Education Foundation’s Showcase of Stars academic banquet honorees each year. Aramark has provided meals to over 300 people at this event annually. Aramark also provided financial support for the Education Foundation for several years prior to underwriting the Showcase of Stars event. Aramark has coached Midway secondary students in multiple cooking competitions and has initiated programs on our campuses to encourage students to try new foods. But recently, Aramark truly displayed fortitude and perseverance in reacting to the COVID-19 pandemic and the closure of schools. Within days of being notified of school closures in March, Midway’s Aramark team flew into action to pack up and distribute meals from multiple elementary campuses to children and families all across our community, whether or not they attended Midway schools. Working with our transportation department, this service was later expanded to include multiple apartment complexes and remote locations within the district. From cold days to very warm days, Aramark staff members have continued to ensure that all children in our community receive the nourishment they need to thrive. Aramark has demonstrated a deep commitment to the children and staff of Midway ISD through their support of the Midway ISD Education Foundation and the school district.
Congratulations to our Friends of Midway corporate honorees
Each year, the district recognizes voluntary gifts of individuals and companies who are steadfast in their commitment to our local community’s schools and improving education for Midway students. Midway ISD is grateful for the dedicated, substantial donations of time, expertise and funding provided by the 2020 Friends of Midway honorees. The Education Foundation is pleased to honor two of our district's corporate partners for their ongoing support. These corporations were honored at the September 15th Midway Board of Trustees meeting and were presented with a beautiful handcrafted bowl created by Robert Rynearson.
