Food From The Bar

Food from the Bar is a month-long competition among Houston’s legal community where participants earn points by donating food, fund and volunteer time to benefit the Houston Food Bank. Through donations and support, the legal community helps Houston Food Bank feed more kids and families in our community. The event is timed to raise much needed resources just before the summer break when kids will be out of school and not receiving school breakfast and lunches. Many local families struggle to provide that extra food during the summer and you are helping bridge that gap.

Register online at For more information, please contact Rocio Rubio for volunteer information or Yolanda Alexander for food/fund drive information.

How it Works

Participants will be awarded points for financial and food contributions and volunteering their time at the Houston Food Bank as follows:

  • 1 lb. of food = 1 point (no beverages, please see our Most Needed Items List)
  • $1 = 3 points 
  • 1 volunteer = 50 points

Firm/Organization Bonus Points:
