They’re encouraging families who aren’t registered in a community center program to call ahead to make sure there are enough meals available. “A lot of kids get their main meals from the school system and so even though the holiday times are so fun and exciting for most of us, it can be a stressful time for families that face food insecurity, so we just want to make sure we help out a little bit where we can,” FCS Community Services Manager Cristin Chavez-Smith said.
