In fall 2008, the Houston Food Bank merged with End Hunger Network, a Houston-area food rescue organization, thus making more effective use of community resources by working together as one.
In fiscal year 2016-2017, the Houston Food Bank distributed 83,000,000 nutritious meals.
The vision for the future is to expand service to the community to 100,000,000 nutritious meals by 2018.
Every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual.
Share Your Holidays benefits the Houston Food Bank, which is America’s largest food bank in distribution to its network of nearly 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties, feeding 137,000 people each week.
After the terrible effects the Houston and surrounding communities suffered due to Hurricane Harvey, this drive is perhaps the most important of all. More than 30,000 families are still without a home and with the holidays approaching, they will need food and assistance to make it through this time of need. Walker Texas Lawyer and the Walker Law Firm stand firmly behind our community and believe that Houston Strong is more than just a phrase, its a way of life. If we all do our part as family, friends and neighbors, we can feed every hungry Houstonian this holidays season and beyond.
Mark your calendar for the 37th annual ABC13’s Share Your Holidays Food Drive happening November 24 – December 10. Donate to the Red Barrel in your local grocery store, then watch ABC13 on Friday, December 8th for all-day coverage.
