The potential for inclement weather caused officials with Houston ISD to cancel several food distribution events originally planned to take place May 1, according to an April 30 announcement from the district's press office.

HISD Nutrition Services planned to distribute student meals, family food boxes, hand sanitzer and masks at seven neighborhood supersites, including the Hattie Mae White Educational supper center and Butler Stadium.


The National Weather Service issued a flash flood watch for all of Houston the morning of April 30, which will be in effect through the morning of May 2. Heavy and prolonged rainfall could cause flooding in low-lying areas and areas with poor drainage infrastructure, such as easily flooded streets.

The seven neighborhood supersites typically operate on Wednesdays and Saturdays, while another batch of campus curbside pickup sites operate on Mondays and Thursdays. More information can be found here.
