A week after announcing it would suspend its citywide meal distribution program, Houston ISD says it is ready to resume the effort starting April 6.

The program was cut short on March 25 after the district said an individual at the Welch Middle School site was potentially exposed to the coronavirus. All volunteers and staff at that site were instructed to self-quarantine for two weeks, the district said.

The district has revised its procedures, adopting new social distancing practices and will be boxing food at a central hub. Each of the sites will distribute up to 500 boxes each day.
