Three high schools and one middle school in the area will host food distribution events next week, according to a schedule released Friday by Houston ISD.
Community members can pick up free food at each of the 25 sites operated by HISD and the Houston Food Bank. HISD said each location has the capability to distribute 500 bags of food — or 15,000 pounds’ worth — per day. Food will be placed in the trunks of recipients’ vehicles, and those who walk to the sites must also adhere to social distancing requirements.
Williams Middle School at 6100 Knox St. in Acres Homes will host a food distribution event at 3 p.m. Monday, May 11. Food will be distributed at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 12 at Booker T. Washington High School at 4204 Yale St. in Independence Heights, and Scarborough High School in Oak Forest will host an event at 9 a.m. Wednesday, May 13 at 4141 Costa Rica Rd. Waltrip High School, another Oak Forest campus at 1900 W. 34th St., will serve as a host site at 3 p.m. Friday, May 15.
Before resuming its weekday distribution events, HISD will hold a Saturday distribution at NRG Stadium for the fourth consecutive weekend. The site is expected to distribute 8,500 food packages from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., according to HISD, which said nearly 2 million pounds of food has been given to more than 20,000 recipients during the last three Saturdays.
