The Houston Food Bank is America’s largest food bank in distribution to its network of 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties. Named top charity in Texas by Charity Navigator for financial performance and accountability, the Houston Food Bank provides 79 million nutritious meals to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding 800,000 people each year. Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from the warehouse, and hot meals are prepared and distributed from the new Keegan Kitchen, a 10,000 square foot, state-of-the-art industrial kitchen. Additional community services range from nutrition education to assistance with food stamp applications and hands-on job training. Red Barrels offer a convenient way for grocery shoppers to donate nonperishables for their neighbors in need.
As a member of the nation’s largest non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization – Feeding America – the goal of the Houston Food Bank is to make food accessible to hungry people in their greatest times of need. In fiscal year 2015-2016, the Houston Food Bank distributed 79,000,000 nutritious meals. The vision for the future is to expand service to the community to 100,000,000 nutritious meals by 2018.
