Harris County Schools are changing their daily meal distribution program to just one day a week following Governor Kemp’s shelter in place order. Harris County Schools will be giving out meals on Mondays only.
Families will be able to pick up five breakfast and lunch meals for their children. Shelia Baker with Harris County Schools says they changed the distribution schedule to cut down on social interaction between employees and families.
Baker says it’s important for them to adhere to the governor’s order, but to also provide their students with much needed resources.
“As we well know, some of our students will not get fed. Some of our students, not because they probably won’t have the food they probably won’t have the means or the necessities to get the food that they need. Parents, I think are very appreciative especially during this time where we all need to come together and work as a community to support each other,” Baker said.
Baker says they plan to continue this until the end of the school year. They also encourage families to refrigerate the meals they do not plan to eat that day.
