COAHOMA — Thanks to the new initiative of West Texas Food Bank and Coahoma Independent School District, families impacted by low gas prices and other families in need that have students in CISD won’t have to worry about going hungry.
The Coahoma Feed the Kids Pantry opened its doors for the first time on Nov. 20 in the annex behind the CISD administration building. The food pantry is the first of its kind for the West Texas Food Bank and according to a press release, it is estimated that 150 to 200 families will be eligible to receive food.
“We have several kids who have a need for food and don’t have food on the weekends when they go home,” CISD superintendent Dr. Amy Jacobs said. “The oil and gas industry can change, leaving families who don’t qualify for free and reduced lunch temporarily unable to provide food for their family.”
