Thank you so much for supporting the Houston Food Bank's COVID-19 response efforts! When our neighbors are struggling, Houston Food Bank is there—every day of the year. With our community in the grips of COVID-19, we are meeting the increased needs of today while preparing for continued challenges in the weeks and months to come.
I wanted to briefly share with you how we are responding to the needs of our neighbors in Houston and across southeast Texas. Since March, we have been:
Working together with school districts to supplement their efforts to ensure children who rely on meals at school are still receiving access to nutritious food during the summer;
Coordinating with municipal health departments on distribution of Quarantine Food Kits. This is direct distribution to medically-directed quarantined / isolated individuals;
Operating alternative distribution models, following CDC recommendations for social distance measures and enhanced sanitation and monitoring partner sites to ensure that all partners are promoting social distance practices such as drive-through and appointment-based distributions;
Adjusting daily to meet the needs of the community and adapting our logistics and operations to help people in the safest and most effective way possible.
Please see the attached document for some of the service highlights made possible through the generosity of people like you.
