Challenge

Children, adults as well as many senior citizens are facing food insecurity issues due to Hurricane Harvey. The Food Bank has increased our distribution to those in need by helping provide access to food and supplies to children, adults and families in our eleven county service area.

Solution

Please know that your generosity and support will help create stability and hope for our hungry neighbors, who are now facing the devastation from the high winds and rising waters. Your support is a critical component as we begin the road to recovery for our neighbors in need. This catastrophic event touched the lives of many in our service area, which covers nearly 11,000 square miles and every county we serve is included in the declared disaster area.

Long-Term Impact

Your donation does make a real difference in these recovery efforts and for that we are grateful. Every dollar donated will help us provide 8 meals. Yes, $1 = 8 meals. For example, $5 = 40 meals. Our ability to leverage your gift makes for an efficient partnership in the road to rebuilding these communities and the lives impacted. It will not be a quick recovery, but it will be a steady one, and with your generosity and support, we will 'survive Hurricane Harvey.'
