Beginning Monday, another Socorro ISD school will be offering free meals to students and the community.
Desert Wind School, located near I-10 and Timothy, will be the district’s seventh school to join the Supper Meal Program.
As KTSM previously reported, the program kicked off in 2017 and includes free after-school snacks and full dinners.
The meals are offered for not only students, but also children in the community.
District officials tell KTSM the dinners include some of the students’ favorite entrees.
“The meals that we develop for the supper program are really driven by data,” Director of Children Shelley Chenausky said. “It’s student favorites. You’ll see a lot of pizza, tacos, hamburgers and things like that.”
Children can receive the meals Monday through Thursday until 4:45 p.m.
The program is also in place at Mission Ridge Elementary School, Bill Sybert and Ernesto Serna schools, Capt. Walter E. Clarke Middle School, and Eastlake and Socorro high schools.
