CISD To Help Out Entire Families With Food Distribution
There is nothing more frightening than wondering where your family's next meal will be coming from. Throughout the stay-at-home order that El Paso has been going through, all of the local school districts have been making breakfast and lunch available to students Monday through Friday. Most are also offering weekend breakfasts and lunches as well for pick up on Fridays. But what about the rest of the family?
The Canutillo Independent School District and the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank are teaming up to make sure that families in their district will not have to go hungry. CISD and EPFH officials say they know that there are so many families out there who don't have access to food because of the tough economic times we are going through and they want to help remedy that.
Families can get a box of groceries at Bill Childress Elementary located at 7700 Cap Carter Road in Vinton, every Monday and Friday from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Quantities are limited to the first 1,000 families who show up at the school. Families can also take advantage of the Canutillo Mobile Food Pantry food distribution on Thursday, May 7th from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Canutillo Middle School. Again, quantities are limited to the first 400 families who show up.
CISD's breakfast and lunch program for kids 18 years old and younger is still available as well. You can get all the information about distribution times and locations by clicking heredistribution times and locations by clicking heredistribution times and locations by clicking here.
