[ARCHIVED] Youth Services Program Provides Meal Service for Families

Youth services

Youth Services program families received a special delivery of complete Thanksgiving meal baskets on November 22 by Youth Services staff as part of an annual holiday event now in its 15th year. Besides spreading holiday cheer, Youth Services provides youth meal service daily for the community. 

“The families were very grateful for the baskets containing a turkey with all the trimmings and a $25 gift card,” said Felipe Briseño, Supervisor for the Weed and Seed program. “We are fortunate to have such a generous community that makes providing assistance to families possible.” The Thanksgiving meal baskets are provided annually by the Fraternal Order of Eagles.

Due to current COVID restrictions, City staff delivered the food baskets while following safety guidelines.

Youth Services continues to provide daily Grab-and-Go meal service for youth from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. at the following locations.
 The service is available free of charge while meals last.

  • A. Fielder Memorial Safe Haven, 906 N. Tornillo St.
  • Meerscheidt Recreation Center, 1600 E. Hadley Ave.
  • Henry R. Benavidez Community Center, 1045 McClure Rd.
  • East Mesa Recreation Center, 5589 Porter Dr.
  • Frank O’Brien Papen Community Center, 304 Bell Ave.
