Humble ISD continues to provide meals to students through June.
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the food supply for schoolchildren everywhere. School districts are working to fill the gap for families.
Families may pick up two days’ worth of breakfast and lunch food every Monday and Wednesday, 11 a.m.-noon, through June 29. Each day’s pickup includes one hot lunch entree and one cold lunch entree.
The meals are provided at no charge for children ages 1-18. There is no sign up. The children must be present when meals are picked up, according to Jamie Mount, Humble ISD’s chief communications officer.
Some food may require cooking, according to the Humble ISD website. Cooking instructions are available on the website.
The meals are provided at five sites. The sites are Oaks Elementary School, Ridge Creek Elementary School, River Pines Elementary School, Humble Middle School and Kingwood Park High School.
Humble ISD Police provide support at each site.
Humble ISD served 504,985 curbside meals between March 17 and May 29. In the first week of June, the district served 18,040 curbside meals, according to Mount.
Humble ISD is reimbursed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Texas Department of Agriculture for each meal served.
“We will continue to monitor program participation and information from the state to determine plans for July,” said Mount.
