Ysleta ISD feeding hundreds of kids after school through ‘Supper Program’

EL PASO, Texas -- Times are tough for families across the borderland. Some are not sure where their next meal will come from. To help, the Ysleta Independent School District is relaunching it's Supper Program this school year.

The program, which is running at 12 different YISD schools this year, serves students a free meal after school.

It's open for all kids under the age of 18. They do not need to be students of YISD in order to be served.

Director of Child Nutrition Services Alan Crawford told ABC-7 some campus feed between 80 to 300 students after school. Most of them take advantage of the program while waiting for after school activities.

"The dollar doesn't quite go as far as it did before," Crawford said. "People are always looking for ways to save a little money and if this allows them to have another meal, that's one less burden that a family might have. So that's a big reason for it."

The program runs from 4 p.m. to about 5 or 5:15 p.m. depending on the campus, Monday through Friday for the rest of the school year.

Below is a list of all the schools participating:
