WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Wichita Falls ISD’s Food Truck is back in action for the Summer meals program with the addition of two new stops.
Wichita Falls ISD has offered summer lunches for quite some time but just last year their food truck rolled out making it easier for students and parents like Allison Kemper.
"I think it's very helpful and really convenient," said Kemper. "It took me a whole minute to drive here so it's right around the corner."
Students like Victoria Harris and Trinity Galyean think it's also very easy.
"We just walked over here and we walked up (to the food truck) and got food," said Victoria.
This year Lamar and Lions Park were added to their route after community members reached out and requested the locations.
"I think for the first day it went good," said Farai Sithole, the district manager for Chartwells K12. "I think as the word goes out we will see our numbers continue to climb."
The food truck also parks outside of City View Junior-Senior High School.
Breakfast and lunch are also served at certain WFISD campuses.
"I think this is an awesome idea that they are doing this", said Kemper.
The program is part of a government program that works to make sure every child has something to eat when they are on summer break.
