Houston Lawyer and Motorcycle Community Team up to Fight Hunger
Walker Texas Lawyer and the motorcycle community teamed up to Fight Hunger! The 37th Annual Share Your Holidays Drive presented by abc13 was a great success because of the many sponsors, volunteers and partners. These individuals and groups donated money, food and their time. The event benefitted the Houston Food Bank, which is America’s largest food bank. Distributing to its network of nearly600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties.
Due to the terrible effects of Hurricane Harvey, this drive is even more important to the Houston Area. More than 30,000 families are still without a home and need food and help. Walker Texas Lawyer and the Walker Law Firm stand behind our community. We believe that Houston Strong is more than a phrase, its a way of life. If we all do our part as family, friends and neighbors, we can feed every hungry Houstonian.
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. As a result, the vision is to expand service to the community to 100,000,000 nutritious meals by 2018.
