It was just a few weeks ago when Canyon Independent School District announced all the students would get free breakfast and lunch. It was a great move. Parents in the school district were excited. I saw many people sharing and posting about it on Facebook.

In a similar move Amarillo Independent School District is doing the same thing. They kicked off the program at Amarillo Schools yesterday. I just love it. I sure wish this was something that was offered when my daughter was in school. It would have been a huge blessing.

All students in AISD schools will get free food regardless of whether they are learning at home or in class. Oh and even more than that anyone under the age of eighteen in Amarillo can get free food even if you are not a student. Wow, what a way to help out the families of Amarillo.

If you have a child under 18 here in Amarillo that does not go to AISD schools here is what you need to do to get your free breakfast and lunch. They will be handing the food out at select schools here in Amarillo between 9:30am and 10:30am. Students who are not enrolled in AISD just need to show up to one of these campuses

Austin Middle School, Caprock High School, Eastridge Elementary, Emerson Elementary, Humphrey's Highland Elementary, Ridgecrest Elementary, Rogers Elementary, San Jacinto Elementary, South Lawn Elementary, Wills Elementary

This is awesome news for students and parents and I applaud the school districts for taking care of the community.
