Marana Unified School District is proud to announce that the Marana Cares Mobile bus, which travels during school and summer breaks to residential areas within the district with a high density of children who traditionally receive meal benefits throughout the school year, reached a significant milestone over Fall Break of 2019 of serving over 10,000 meals since inception!

Handicap accessible, the mobile unit created from a re-"tired" school bus, offers a fun dining experience, with Wi-fi, Chromebooks and literacy encouragement, for children. These services are brought to our community through private donations, corporate sponsorship, and charitable foundations.
