“Many school districts in Texas have announced they will be closed for at least a week. School closures typically means school lunch and school breakfast are no longer available but our Texas schools are working to make food available to students during closures. The Texas Hunger Initiative is working to provide the most up-to-date information on food resources available. Visit for updates.

In addition to school closures and student food resources, the website includes:

  • USDA + TDA Updates
