The Houston Independent School District will relaunch food distribution efforts throughout the district beginning today, in an effort to streamline the process that will implement increased safety measures.
HISD Nutrition Services is working with the Houston Food Bank for the initiative and use the Hexser T. Holliday Food Services Support Facility as the central hub for this initiative. That is where staff will pack food into boxes then deliver 500 of them a day Monday through Friday.
Added safety measures include the Standard Distribution Method developed by the I Love You Guys Foundation, which will lead safety distancing for both staff and families.
Families who arrive today, will be greeted by staff to fill out an Emergency Food Assistance Program Form. In an effort to minimize interpersonal contact, boxes will be placed in car trunks. Walk ups are expected to adhere to the new social distancing standards.
