If you were looking for a sign that people care...

Volunteers sorting food for distribution
If you were looking for a sign that people care, this is it. Always remember that your value is not measured by what you own but by what you give: a smile, a kind word, a helping hand, an open heart. You are priceless!
When it comes to priceless things, Houston Food Bank has learned many valuable lessons from our neighbors experiencing hunger throughout the last two years and it's taken steps to address health, safety, accessibility, and flexibility. As recovery from the pandemic continues, those impacted the most by COVID-19 are some of the last to recover from the pandemic’s economic fallout. Now, rising food prices have created a harsh reality for families in our community who were already struggling to afford enough food. When prices rise, it means more people may need help from food banks to keep food on the table. It also means food banks must pay higher prices for food just as more people may be turning to them for help.
Houston Food Bank relies on your ongoing support to contend with higher food prices and continue feeding as many families facing hunger as possible. Thank you for your help and care - together we can make sure that families on a budget have enough tot eat this fall.
