Houston ISD has announced that because the weather in Houston is supposed to be bad on Friday, it won't be doing its food distribution.

It will resume operations on Monday, March 23. According to a press release "Families who do not have transportation and must walk to the site can continue to stand in line but will be required to stand six feet apart from each other. HISD Police and staff volunteers will be on site to enforce these measures and help with crowd control.

"Meal distribution sites are open to all families. Sites have been strategically located throughout the district to ensure all families have access. Distribution will take place outside in the parking lot."
