When our neighbors are struggling, Houston Food Bank is there—every day of the year. Our efficient work and network of community partners means that we are uniquely prepared to respond to crises. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we have a proud history of supporting our neighbors as they prepare for, respond to, and recover from disasters of all types.
We've almost made it through winter with no major storms this year. On Groundhog Day, Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, awoke and saw his shadow — which, according to folklore, means there will be six more weeks of winter. To many Texans, it means remaining vigilant about keeping their pantries stocked in case we have another Winter Storm. Your donations help us make sure those pantries stay stocked.
With your support we distributed more than 207 million nutritious meals last year. We are also making strides in implementing new technologies in our programs including our Backpack Buddy and Senior Box Programs. In response to improviding our distributions to meet COVID-19 safety protocols, we’ve launched the OrderAhead app which allows families to shop for items they choose and pick them up at a scheduled time and location that works for their schedule. Through partnerships with delivery services we’ve launched home delivery to our clients with mobility issues and lack of transportation and we are working to expand these programs.
