Mayor Tim Keller Highlights the Winter Break Supper Meal Program

The program provides meals for any child during the winter break.

Today, Mayor Tim Keller and the City’s Department of Family and Community Services highlighted the Winter Supper Meals Program by serving warm meals to children at the Herman Sanchez Community Center. The program provides meals for children ages 1-18 at 28 locations throughout the city during the winter break.

The Winter Break Supper Meal Program is made possible due to a partnership between the Department of Family and Community Services, Albuquerque Public Schools, New Mexico Appleseed, the One Meal a Day Task Force and the Out of School Time Network.

“The meal program enables kids to continue healthy eating habits throughout the winter break,” stated Mayor Tim Keller. “For some kids this is the only warm meal they may get each day and we are especially grateful to all of the organizations and facilities for coming together to meet this critical need in our community.”

The meal program started on December 21, and will continue to offer hot meals on December 27, 28, 31 and January 2-4. Approximately 1,200 meals are served each day through the winter program.
