2020-2021 Student Meals

  • Nutrition Services offers twice-weekly curbside pickup for student meals and two Neighborhood Supersites as part of a weekly community food distribution initiative.

    The move to twice-weekly campus-based curbside pickup begins Monday, Oct. 12, and allows families to pick up several days’ worth of meals at each pickup — three on Mondays and four on Thursdays.

    Neighborhood Supersites are designed to provide standing times and locations where the community can pick up 32 pounds of groceries — including produce, dairy, and meat — for their families, as well as a week’s worth of student meals.

    Family food boxes are available at no cost to the general public. Student meals are available at no cost to any child who is between the ages of 1 and 18 and not engaged in in-person learning. Children must be in the car or families must provide a birth certificate or proof of enrollment in any school district for each child needing meals.

    Curbside Pickup

    During the week of Monday, Oct. 12, campus-based curbside pickup will be available on Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Beginning Monday, Oct. 19, campus-based curbside pickup will shift to 2 to 5 p.m. every Monday and Thursday. Meals include breakfast and lunch only until Monday, Oct. 19, when snack and dinner also will begin to be provided.

    Additionally, three select campus-based curbside pickup locations — Sam Houston Math, Science, and Technology Center and Milby and Chavez high schools — will continue to provide 32-pound family food boxes to the general public on a first-come, first-served basis through a partnership with the Houston Food Bank.

    Curbside pickup also will continue daily at a rotating list of apartment complexes, Monday through Friday from 1 to 3 p.m.

    Neighborhood Supersites

    Beginning Saturday, Oct. 24, Nutrition Services will host weekly community food distributions every Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. The two Neighborhood Supersites — one at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center and the other at the Hexser T. Holliday Food Services Support Center — provide a place where Houstonians can go each week to pick up 32-pound family food packages and a week's worth of student meals. 

    The Saturday distributions will replace the previously scheduled Wednesday distributions to better accommodate working families.
