HOUSTON — Editor's note: The attached video originally aired on April 17.

The Houston Independent School District will continue to provide free meals for families the week of April 27 with another 25 food distribution sites throughout the district. 

HISD Nutrition Services staff will pack enough food bags to distribute up to 500 bags — or 15,000 pounds of food — per day at each site.

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.
