Houston Food Bank

In Houston Food Bank’s 18-county service area, there are 1.1 million food insecure individuals, meaning they cannot afford enough food to fuel a regularly healthy lifestyle. The impact of the Houston Food Bank extends beyond putting food on the table. We distribute millions of pounds of nutritious food to the community with the goal of not only providing nourishment but also reducing the hardship in making difficult financial choices such as deciding between paying for medicine or paying for groceries. Beyond providing nourishing food as a resource for families, Houston Food Bank also provides programs and services aimed at helping families achieve long-term stability including nutrition education, job training, health management, and help with securing state-funded assistance. In collaboration with the community, we advocate for policy change to increase access to food and further improve the lives of those we serve. With your help, we are providing food for better lives!
