KHOU Food Drive
July 18 - August 6
KHOU 11 has committed to longtime hunger relief in Houston with the KHOU 11 Food Fight to benefit the Houston Food Bank.
The station is joined in this effort by its generous community partners: Katy Furniture and Reliant, an NRG Company.
This year we spiced things up with a competition among the KHOU 11 Morning Team and the KHOU 11 Evening Team to see who can collect the most donations for the Houston Food Bank from July 18 to August 6.
While we love food donations, for every $1 donated the Houston Food Bank can provide three full meals.
To help, donate non-perishable food in Houston Food Bank Red Barrels located in over 190 area grocery stores. Each Red Barrel is assigned to a neighborhood food pantry so that the food donated in your local store directly serves your neighbors.
The KHOU 11 team, food drive sponsors, plus Houston Food Bank staff and volunteers will be on hand to collect food and funds throughout the day. Katy Furniture will be collecting food at its store, located at 1620 N. Westgreen Blvd. in Katy.
Below are some of the Houston Food Bank's most-needed items:
- Canned ready-to-eat items with pull tops: vegetables, fruit
- Protein in pouches or pull-top cans: tuna, beef stew, chili, canned chicken
- Peanut butter
- Snacks: granola bars, breakfast bars, etc.
- Bottled water
- Cleaning supplies: mops, mop buckets, brooms, bleach wipes, bleach, garbage bags, bug spray
