(Big 2 / Fox 24) – Ector County ISD and the West Texas Food Bank are preparing to launch their summer food programs.

The goal, is to ensure that children who rely on school lunches, have fresh meals during the summer break.

ECISD’s program, the Summer Food Service Program, is administered state-wide by the Texas Department of Agriculture and it will begin on Wednesday.

The SFSP is for children 18 and under.

Meanwhile, the WTFB will launch the same program region-wide.

WTFB has teamed up with 13 sites to make it happen this summer as the needs grow in the Permian Basin.

“Summer is our busiest time of year, and we are looking forward to reaching the kiddos who are not getting two meals a day from school. The addition of fun activities for the kids is just a bonus! I am very thankful for the two museums for helping and I am especially grateful to all the volunteers who help us get 800 kids a day nutritious meals,” Libby Campbell, Executive Director of the West Texas Food Bank said.

A list of sites, dates and times can be seen below.
