We Can Do So Much More Because of You

More than two years ago COVID-19 began impacting our community. A lot has changed since then. Your gift to GlobalGiving to support Houston Food Bank has helped us respond to increased requests for assistance. We're delivering more nutritious meals than ever to our neighbors experiencing hunger, an average of 500,000 meals per distribution day.  

We have learned a lot over the last two years.  Impacts to the global food supply chain made us more aware of our local needs. That is why Houston Food Bank is making sure the areas we serve have access to free local food by supporting hyperlocal farmers and food producers.  We also know the people we serve get hit the hardest with inflation. With food prices and gas prices soaring we are doing everything within our capability to continue to increase food distributions.

Around 1 million people in the 18 southeast Texas counties served by Houston Food Bank are considered food insecure, meaning they lack consistent access to adequate nutritious food to fuel a healthy life. 

In the last month, we distributed more than 14 million pounds of food and more than 4 million pounds of fresh produce to help fill the gaps on plates.  Our programs are designed with intent to ensure that the most vulnerable populations have access to the nutritious food they need. Through our special programs, in the last month we delivered 44,296 ready to eat meals through the Kids Cafe Program and continue to serve more than 11,000 seniors through our Senior Box Program. 

Thank you.  Supporters like you allow Houston Food Bank to do the work that we do!
