The Fresh Bus produce delivery program is announcing new community stops to better serve students and families.
The new stops will be located at apartment complexes that surround the 68 participating schools and have high student populations. Families can go direct to their closest pick-up site. No survey or registration is required.
All students enrolled at the 68 participating schools are eligible. A complete list of schools is available at HoustonISD.org/FreshBus.
The Fresh Bus program provides weekly deliveries of fresh fruits and vegetables to several locations in each of participating 68 school communities, making fresh produce directly available to more than 36,000 students.
When picking up produce, families are required to follow directions from bus attendants, who will be onsite to ensure safe pedestrian traffic and appropriate social distancing at the pick-up site.
Specific times and stop locations are being posted regularly at HoustonISD.org/FreshBus and on the Nutrition Services twitter account, which can be found at @HISDNutri.
