Changes to HISD food distribution due to Hurricane Laura

All Houston Independent School District food distribution efforts have been canceled for Thursday and Friday due to potential inclement weather from Hurricane Laura.

Curbside summer meals are canceled on Thursday, Aug. 27. Student meal delivery to designated apartment complexes will continue Wednesday, Aug. 26, but will be canceled on Thursday, Aug. 27 and Friday, Aug. 28. Both summer meal programs conclude this week.

The mass community food distribution scheduled for Friday, Aug. 28 in the NRG Stadium Yellow Lot has been rescheduled for noon to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 29 at the same location.

Families in need are encouraged to visit the Saturday distribution at NRG. Families can pick up an 80-pound food package and a week’s worth of student meals for each child, as well as face masks from the City of Houston, hygiene packs provided by the Anita D Designer Foundation, STEM kits from the Children’s Museum of Houston, and school supplies provided by Reliant, T-Mobile, and Staples.

Attendees must enter via the NRG yellow lot main entrance off South Main Street. As families arrive, Nutrition Services staff will minimize contact by placing item in vehicle trunks. Participants who walk to NRG must adhere to physical distancing requirements.

For student meals, the driver must have children in the car or show proof of enrollment in any school district (report card, student id, etc.) or birth certificate. All other items — community food packages, school supplies, masks, hygiene packs, and STEM kits — are available to all.
