Schools in Texas are temporarily closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic for the foreseeable future. Much is still unknown about the continuing impact this will have on schooling in the coming weeks and months.
This has raised the issue of how students and families who rely on school breakfasts and lunches will be able to access food resources.
However, many nonprofits, state and federal agencies, schools, and other groups have come together to make sure students receive these meals.
