"Because the Santa Fe Public Schools had a planned spring break beginning March 16-20, we didn’t have any food on hand to feed our students this week. Due to the swift action of Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, Secretary of Education Ryan Stewart and Major General Kenneth A. Nava, head of the National Guard, we are pleased to announce that we will be distributing breakfast and lunch “grab and go” bags," Garcia said.
Any school-age child, high school age and under, and every child under age 5 can receive a free meal during the following times:
● Breakfast: 7:30 – 8:30 AM
● Lunch: 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Santa Fe Public Schools will distribute free meals to any child, high school age and under, at “drive-up” distribution points at the following locations:
● Aspen Community School
● Capital High School
● Chaparral Elementary School
● Kearney Elementary School
● Ramirez Thomas Elementary School
● Santa Fe High School
● Sweeney Elementary School
Families are to remain in their vehicle, and one meal will be provided to each child. A child must be present to receive a meal. SFPS will continue to provide meals at these times and locations on weekdays throughout spring break and continuing on through the state-mandated closure of schools.
On Tuesday and Wednesday only, free meals will be provided at Hope Unlimited Church, 6700 Cerrillos Rd., from noon to 5 p.m.
“I am grateful that the Governor and her team supported our District’s students and I commend Deputy Superintendent Kristy Wagner and her General Services team who swiftly jumped into action all day Sunday to ensure that we would be ready to serve our students on Monday morning," Dr. Garcia said.
