Drop in the Red Barrel

Red _BarrelRed Barrels can be found in grocery stores throughout the Houston area. Each Red Barrel is assigned to a pantry located near the store, so the program truly is neighbors helping within their own neighborhoods.

Donating to the Red Barrel is easy - pick up a prepackaged bag while you're doing your grocery shopping, drop it in the Red Barrel on your way out, and you're done. You've just provided necessary food staples like peanut butter, tuna, and rice to a hungry family.

Last year, the Red Barrels distributed more than a million and a half pounds of food to hungry Houstonians.
