CEOOur President/CEO

Brian Greene is President and CEO of the Houston Food Bank, a non-profit organization that feeds the hungry by seeking food donations and distributing them to nearly 600 hunger relief programs in 18 southeast Texas counties.  Founded in 1982, the organization helps 800,000 individuals each year through food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens and other meal sites.

Since taking the top post at the Houston Food Bank (HFB) in 2005, Brian has led the organization to unprecedented growth.  In August 2011, the Food Bank moved into its new home, a 308 thousand square foot warehouse and office facility, purchased and renovated thanks to a $55.6 million capital campaign.  The new building is four times larger than the old one.

Last fiscal year, HFB distributed 59 million nutritious meals and other necessities.  HFB is the nation’s largest size Feeding America food bank. The vision for the future is to expand service to the community to 100 million nutritious meals by 2018.

In fall 2008, the 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.  Through Brian’s leadership, Food Bank programs have expanded to feed more children and tap into additional sources for food donations.

Before moving to Houston, Brian was the executive director of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Greater New Orleans and Acadiana for 12 years.  In the five years prior, he held the same position at the Second Harvest Food Bank in Knoxville, Tennessee.
