Houston ISD has announced that since Cullen Middle School has now been designated a COVID-19 testing site for the city, the school district will move the food distribution it has been doing there to Hartsfield Elementary at 5001 Perry,

The same guidelines apply:

As families arrive at sites, nutrition staff will minimize contact by filling out the required Emergency Food Assistance Program forms for families and placing food in their trunks. Participants who walk to the sites also must adhere to social distancing requirements.

These are the food distribution sites and hours on Thursday, April 16

Hartsfield Elementary School, 5001 Perry, 9 a.m. (Updated)
Jane Long Academy, 6501 Bellaire Boulevard., 9 a.m.
Burrus Elementary School, 701 E. 33rd, 11 a.m.
Wheatley High School, 4801 Providence, 3 p.m.
Fonwood Early Childhood Center, 9709 Mesa, 3 p.m.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
