Free Shuttles to Food Assistance

If you've been affected by Hurricane Harvey and want to apply for short-term food benefits, METRO is here to help. 

We'll be providing free shuttles today through Friday, Oct. 20, for residents applying for the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (D-SNAP)

The registration site is open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is located at Alexander Deussen Park at 12303 Sonnier St. We'll be offering free METRO shuttles from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. from the following locations: 

  • JJ Robertson Family Life Center, 4810 Red Bud St.
  • Acres Homes Multi-Service Center, 6719 W. Montgomery Rd. 
  • The Tabernacle of Praise, 8814 Tidwell Rd.

Applicants must be in line by 7 p.m. to be considered, according to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. The D-SNAP application extension was a cooperative effort by many levels of government, including the Department of Agriculture, U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, U.S. Rep. Al Green, Harris County Judge Ed Emmett, Harris County Comm. Rodney Ellis, Mayor Sylvester Turner and state officials.
