Serving for Success

Serving for Success is a collaboration that trains offenders for living wage jobs while they volunteer at the Houston Food Bank. With help from Serving for Success participants, the Food Bank can keep costs down as we grow and feed more hungry people. At the same time former offenders become productive citizens.
