Fall 2017 Grant Recipient: Houston Food Bank
for October 31, 2017
Thanks to you, we have been able to help the Houston Food Bank with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. We were able to grant 50,000 towards food and supplies.
More than 1.1 million people in the 18 southeast Texas counties served by Houston Food Bank are considered food insecure, meaning they lack consistent access to enough nutritious food to fuel a healthy life. In order to address this issue, the Houston Food Bank distributes food and other essentials to those in need through a network of 1,500 community partners. In addition, we also provide programs and services aimed at helping families achieve long-term stability including nutrition education, job training, health management, and help in securing state-funded assistance
