About 30,000 Texans were still without power on Sunday (February 21) after a historic, deadly winter storm, Texas Governor Greg Abbott told reporters.
He said power would be restored to those people later today or on Monday (February 22).
Distribution centers were set up around the state to help people in need of food and water, including at the NRG Stadium in Houston.
The food drive was a joint effort between the Houston School District and the Houston Food Bank, according to local media.
“[There are] two things we’re trying to accomplish: because of the boil notice they need water, but also for the families, the economic impact of this, they may have lost the food in their freezer or refrigerator,” explained Brian Greene, president of the Houston Food Bank.
Volunteers handed out items such as: apples, tortillas, and bottles of water.
