December 5, 2016 - We had a great time delivering some holiday cheer to the Houston Food Bank in the form of a cash donation, gathered from promotions held during 2016. The total donation was $97,581, which will provide 292,743 meals for the hungry!
The Houston Food Bank is a solution to hunger in times of need. The Food Bank distributes 79 million nutritious meals through its network of 600 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other hunger relief charities in southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year. Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from the warehouse at 535 Portwall, and meals for kids are prepared and distributed from Keegan Center, a 15,000 square-foot industrial kitchen. Additional community services include nutrition education, school-based programs, food stamp applications and hands-on job training.
The vision for the future is to expand service to the community to 100,000,000 nutritious meals by 2018. Every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual.
