Once you have faxed or e-mailed all of your forms to Lauren Horton you are ready to begin receiving food sacks.

You have two options:
School Pick Up locations: (weekly, bi weekly or monthly)

  • The Houston Food Bank 535 Portwall Street, Houston Tx 77029 

**When you arrive, you will park your car in the visitor’s parking lot and visit the Distribution office by the front lobby. Let the staff know the name of the school and they will get your paperwork started. They will let you know when the bay is open for you to pull in and get your order.

* You’ll need to sign a slip before leaving the HFB with your food sacks.  By signing the slip you are acknowledging that you have received your entire order of food sacks.
