Campaign to End Homelessness and Hunger
This committee will partner with the Houston Food Bank and local veterans' shelters.
The HBA is a proud Child Hunger Partner at the Houston Food Bank. Join us in helping the community by volunteering at any of our events. Watch for new opportunities in March.
Thank you to the volunteers who helped the Houston Food Bank load 1,238 cars with food and water on February 26 at the Northeast Multi-Service Center!
New Houston Food Bank COVID-19 Protocols
We are following CDC recommended sterilization procedures and have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, especially around high-traffic areas (volunteer areas, elevators, meeting rooms, bathrooms, food areas).In the interest of public safety and the safety of Houston Food Bank employees and other volunteers, Houston Food Bank is practicing temperature readings upon entry into the facility. If a temporal artery (forehead scan) temperature reading is 99.4 degrees (38 C) or higher, the Houston Food Bank will ask a volunteer or group to leave and reschedule their volunteer shift.We are practicing social distancing with our volunteers asking them to stay at least an arm’s length (or 6 feet) away from other volunteers.Volunteers working warehouse projects are required to wash hands before their shift starts, during breaks, when they switch projects, and after their shift. Gloves are also available for wear for warehouse projects, but not required.
