HARRIS COUNTY PRECINCT 2 – Harris County Precinct 2 has three programs to distribute food to those that need it on a first come first serve basis.
The first thing to know is that most of the Harris County Community Centers have been closed unless there is a special program going on at one of them. For example, who knew they were testing for Covid-19 at the Crosby Community Center last weekend? The only centers still open are those that are centrally located within Precinct 2 such as Barrett Community Center, and J.D. Walker Community Center. They are servicing Highlands and Crosby and Huffman, to obtain food in the drive through programs.
Free Food Programs include the Senior Homebound Food Distribution Programs where about 300 meals are taken to the resident’s home a day if the senior registers online or by telephone and they are accepted.
“Secondly, we are doing what we call brown bag lunches at Community Centers on Mondays and Wednesdays and at our three parks on Tuesday and Thursdays on a weekly basis,” said Frida Villalobos, who heads the programs for Commissioner Adrian Garcia.
“On Fridays we are offering ‘Free Hot Meals’ at our Community Centers. We are contracting with local restaurants at the five community centers. So, each community center is offering 200 meals, so each business gets the opportunity to bid for the project and then they bring the food and families can come on a first come first serve basis and they get their meal,” concluded Villalobos.
The registration website is hcp2.com and the telephone number for those lacking internet is (713) 274-2222. Also on social media on the Precinct 2 page, there is constant updating for changes and opportunity.
