In response to food assistance demand during COVID-19, Houston Food Bank has started Neighborhood Super Site distributions in different areas of town.
The newest distribution will be held on Mondays from 2-7 p.m. at Bowers Stadium on the campus of Sam Houston State University. However, there won't be a distribution on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day.
Distributions will be provided on a first-come-first-serve basis.
The goal is to distribute food to 1,500 vehicles per week. Each vehicle will be given approximately 60-80 lbs. of food, from fresh produce to frozen meat, dairy, bread and non perishables. This distribution is held in partnership with Covenant with Christ International.
Workers will minimize contact with families by placing food in their trunks.
