Food distribution efforts led by the Houston Independent School District in partnership with the Houston Food Bank will continue Saturday at NRG Stadium and throughout next week at 25 campuses around the district.
Saturday’s event at NRG is the fourth mass community food distribution. The site is expected to distribute 8,500 food packages. The site will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Distribution will be held in the NRG yellow lot, and attendees must enter via the yellow lot main entrance off South Main Street.
To date, almost 2 million pounds of food have been distributed to more than 20,000 recipients during the Saturday events.
Additionally, weekday food distribution will continue next week with another 25 sites throughout the district. Each site can distribute up to 500 bags — or 15,000 pounds of food — per day.
As families arrive at sites, Nutrition Services staff will minimize contact by filling out the required Emergency Food Assistance Program forms for families and placing food in their vehicle trunks. Participants who walk to the sites also must adhere to social distancing requirements.
