Food Safety Training

Online Food Safety Training is available
Feeding America has mandated that all partner agencies must have at minimum one person working with food distribution be knowledgeable of food safety.  The Houston Food Bank has developed an online course that meets Feeding America standards. This safety training is now a requirement to be an active member of the food bank to ensure compliance with Feeding America.

Book your Community Food Fair

Please book at least 14 days before event

Please note: Community Food Fairs are available only to charities that are already registered as Houston Food Bank partner agencies. Is your charity interested in becoming a partner agency?

For partner agencies: Community Food Fairs provide large quantities of perishable and shelf-stable food for distribution at an event hosted by your agency, open to anyone who needs food assistance. We ask our partner agencies to include social services during the food distribution, such as nutrition education or health screenings. Community Food Fairs are available in quantities of 10 or 20 pallets. Depending on the quantity you order, you may ask for the Food Bank delivery truck to either drop the pallets or remain in place for your event.
