During the school year, students received food from the Houston Food Bank via their Back-Pack Buddy program. That same program allowed students to continue to receive food during the school shutdowns in early 2020. Since May, in partnership with the Houston Food Bank, 6 churches and local leaders, both campuses have become food distribution sites for the community.
NSI has helped our schools to respond to other student needs during the pandemic as well. We were able to supply two rounds of home kits for each student that included all basic school supplies, books and fun activities. Along with the home kits, NSI provided computers to each school to loan to families during the end of spring virtual learning.
