There is a lot of need to feed hungry kids in El Paso. The Socorro Independent School District is working to help those kids out. The district will now begin offering free dinners throughout this school year.

The free supper meal pilot program will begin Tuesday, September 5 and will make after-school snacks and full dinners available to students at no charge. Kids ages 1-18 can show up to any participating school, sign in, and eat in the cafeteria.

SISD officials say the program will be implemented at Mission Ridge Elementary School, Bill Sybert and Ernesto Serna schools, Capt. Walter E. Clarke Middle School, and Eastlake and Socorro high schools. SISD already offers free universal breakfast to all of its students, free lunches at select campuses, and free snacks for WIN Academy students.

The SISD supper meal program will be offered Monday through Thursday from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at Eastlake and Socorro high schools, and 3:15 to 5 p.m. at Bill Sybert, Ernesto Serna, Capt. Walter E. Clarke, and Mission Ridge.
