Dec. 16, 2022

The City of Albuquerque’s Supper Meals program will continue to serve at-risk children during winter break this year. The program, funded through the US Department of Agriculture, is administered by the Family & Community Services in cooperation with Bernalillo County and provides free hot and nutritious meals to youth enrolled in eligible after school program throughout Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

“Providing meals to the City’s youth is an essential component in serving the whole family,” said Community Recreation division manager Cristin Chavez-Smith. “Many children rely on school lunches and this program fills that gap during school breaks, keeping youth engaged and fed.”

Meals are served Monday through Friday during APS winter break. All CABQ community center program participants are automatically registered to receive a meal. If your child is not registered in a community center program and would like to receive Supper Meals, please contact the site ahead of time to order a meal. Participants must be under the age of 18.

The full list of meal sites for 2022 is on the City’s website.
