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.
The vision for the future is to expand service to the community to 100,000,000 nutritious meals by 2018.
Every dollar donated to the Houston Food Bank provides the equivalent of three meals for an individual.
We calculate this by dividing total meals provided by total adjusted costs, using a Feeding America formula. The number does not include the meals provided through SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly food stamps) benefits.
As a member of the nation's largest non-governmental, domestic hunger relief organization - Feeding America - our goal is to make food accessible to hungry people in their greatest times of need.
VISION: Food access for all.
MISSION: Leading the fight against hunger.
