The Houston Independent School District is temporarily closing most Curbside Summer Meals sites beginning Friday, July 3, due to guidance from public health officials and rising numbers of COVID-19 cases throughout the city.
Five strategically located sites offering both Curbside Summer Meals and the Houston Food Bank’s Coronavirus Food Assistance Program — which provides families with 30-pound boxes of produce — will remain open.
Those sites are Sam Houston Math, Science, and Technology Center, Revere Middle School, and Kashmere, Chavez, and Milby high schools.
To help close the gap at the remaining 37 sites, HISD will provide six days worth of meals — twice the normal amount — during final distributions on Thursday, July 2. All will then undergo deep cleaning and santization as a precautionary measure before re-opening on Monday, July 20.
Families in need are encouraged to visit one of the district’s 42 sites on Thursday or one of the select five partner sites over the next two weeks.
