The city of Kyle announced information about two emergency food distributions occurring Feb. 20.
The closest emergency food distribution for Hays County residents is planned for Feb. 20 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at Lehman High School at 1700 Lehman Rd., Kyle. It is organized through a partnership between Kyle and the Central Texas Food Bank.
For those that miss it, an additional food distribution by CTFB will be held at Del Valle High School in Travis County at 5201 Ross Rd., Del Valle, from noon to 3 p.m. Feb. 20. Information about other food distributions may be found on CTFB's website.
Visitors to the food distributions will receive a box with assorted produce, milk and a box of protein, but actual contents may vary with availability, the release said.
No registration is required for the free event and anyone is welcome to participate.
CTFB distributions are done in a drive-thru model, and volunteers will be responsible for placing food boxes in trunks. The food bank also requests that only one person attend per household to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread.
Attendees must arrive in vehicles and there will be no walk-up distributions.
If heading east on Lehman Road, drivers should use the second entrance to the Lehman High School parking lot.
For those in need of fresh water, Kyle has also organized a water filing station at Hays High School at 4800 Jack C Hays Trail, Buda. Residents should bring their own containers between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Feb. 20-21. The city said additional sites are being planned.
Each visitor will be allotted 5 gallons, which can be consumed without boiling because HHS has a dedicated well not impacted by the boil water notice.
People visiting the water filling station are requested to adhere to state and local orders regarding social distancing and should use face coverings, the release noted.
The city suggested residents, if able, should assist their neighbors with delivery of water and finding containers to use at the filling stations.
