WFISD delivers 782 meals at start of Thanksgiving Break

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Monday was a busy day for the Wichita Falls I-S-D; “it is all hands on deck,” as Emily Kincaid with Chartwells K12 put it.

The district handed out 782 boxes of food, each with 15 meals, to cars.

“Gonna have to try and find a place to put it all,” Magaline Jones said.

Magaline Jones and her granddaughter were among those who piled into the car and waited as district workers loaded cardboard boxes into their car.

“I think it’s quite convenient while they’re out of school,” she said.

“What we have in there is everything from sandwiches to pasta bakes but also bento boxes with a little flatbread,” Kincaid explained, “a little bit of tuna, some fresh vegetables and fresh fruit.”

Kincaid said kids not being in school can be a tough time for families

“I think especially this year families who have never struggled with food insecurity might be taxed,” she said.

So for her and her team, she said the solution was simple.

“We saw that need,” Kincaid said, “we really wanted to fill it.”

It’s an effort that isn’t gong unnoticed by community members like Magaline.

“I appreciate them helping families with this things during rough times,” she said.
