Supper Meal Program Comes to Bel Air, Del Valle Middle Schools

The Ysleta Independent School District (YISD) will introduce its “supper program” for the first time at Bel Air and Del Valle middle schools beginning January 28, primarily to provide free and nutritious meals to students who remain on campus for extracurricular activities after classes have been dismissed.

The program, which is funded through the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child and Adult Care Food Program, is already in effect at six high schools, Eastwood Middle School, and the Young Women’s Leadership Academy.

It provides supper meals on school days – generally at about 4 p.m. – that are free of charge to children 18 years and younger, and available for purchase by adults.

Given the large numbers of older students who stay on campus after school for sports, theater, band, or other clubs, the supper program gives students access to a nutritional meal in the cafeteria before rehearsal or practice.

Beginning Monday, January 28, the supper program will be offered at the following 10 schools:

Bel Air High School
Del Valle High School
Hanks High School
Parkland High School
Riverside High School
Ysleta High School
Bel Air Middle School
Del Valle Middle School
Eastwood Middle School
Young Women’s Leadership Academy

Officials say this program is part of YISD’s overall efforts to “increase student access to healthy meals, which includes free breakfast for all students at every YISD campus throughout the year.”

The supper program was first piloted two years ago at Ysleta High School, and expanded to include four schools in September 2017, and eight schools in September 2018.
