HISD closed food distribution sites for potential coronavirus exposure

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- HISD is canceling its food distribution sites while it re-evaluates the program.

The district had been providing food at several locations in a partnership with the Houston Food Bank.

HISD released the following statement:

We have been made aware that an individual present at one of HISD's Wednesday food distribution sites is now under self-quarantine as a precaution due to potential COVID-19 exposure. As a result, the food distribution sites operated by the Houston Independent School District in partnership with the Houston Food Bank on Thursday and Friday have been canceled.


"This is a difficult decision to make, but the safety of the community, staff, and volunteers is our top priority," Interim Superintendent Grenita Lathan said.

Families in need of food can participate in the City of Houston's curbside meal program at 50 community centers by visiting this Houston Parks & Recreation Department page.



You can also view all of the sites below. The program serves youth ages 1 to 18.

Snack and lunch distribution takes place Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. To ensure social distancing guidelines, meals are placed in the trunk of a recipient's car. Lunches and snacks will be distributed to each participant at one time.
