Now operating from a new, 308,000-square-foot facility, the Houston Food Bank is the largest source of food for hunger-relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties. Charity Navigator has named it one of 10 Top-Notch Charities across the nation. A network of 500 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers, and other agencies, feeding a total of 137,000 people each week, provides nearly 70 million pounds of food and prepared meals annually. Fresh produce, meat, and non-perishables are distributed from the new warehouse, and hot meals are prepared and distributed from Keegan Center, a 15,000-square-foot 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 non-perishables for their neighbors in need. The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network.
