Time magazine’s ‘Heroes of the Front Lines” features local union food service workers

Alliance-AFT member Yolanda Fisher with makes the cover of Time for her team’s work providing meals to Dallas ISD students.

“I’m still going to work because we’re still feeding the kids—it’s not just kids that attend my school, it’s any child that stayed in Dallas and they need a meal. And if a family is really in need, we give the adults a meal as well. When it first started we would come in from 6:30 in the morning until 5 in the evening, working weekends and stuff, but now it’s leveling off. I’m loving it because I miss [the kids’] faces. You miss hearing their noise. We are feeding our community, and I love that.”
