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.
