ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/ Fox 24) – ECISD says four schools are going to receive meals for free.
Those parents won’t have to spend money on their children’s school lunches. We spoke with a few parents who liked the idea of free lunch for students.
“It takes away the stress from those parents that have to pay for their kids lunches, Karla Dominey, a parent says.
Dominey says there are different struggles in every family household. The change ECISD put in place would benefit those families who are trying to make ends meet.
“The kid would be able to just go get lunch and really not be labeled as oh you get the free lunch or I have to pay for my lunch,” Dominey says.
Although the four schools will have free meals, the ECISD Nutrition Department says they’re planning to do the best they can to have free meals for all the schools in the district by 2021.
