Hagar, S. (2018, February 18). Milton-Freewater’s ‘Bertha the Lunch Bus’ gets a makeover.

The Milton-Freewater Unified School District recently received a $17,000 grant from the Oregon Department of Education to make improvements to Bertha, which has been used over the last three years to ferry food to hungry kids for the district’s summer lunch program. The little bus has had its share of age-related ailments, including alternator issues and blown tires. The grant money will help rejuvenate Bertha inside and out as it heads into a fourth year of service.
