Northside ISD food program helps local families, refugee students

Volunteers handed out bags of food Tuesday to about 200 local families at Pat Neff Middle School.

The food is part of a Northside Independent School District distribution program in conjunction with the San Antonio Food Bank and Bill Miller Bar-B-Q.

"We see a huge need for basic resources: Food, housing. Really, it's not just at this campus, it's at many campuses," said Kelly Rasti, a school liaison.

About 75 refugee students were also issued bags of food to take home.
