The emergency pantry is operated by the Emergency Aid Coalition (EAC).  Emergency Aid Coalition has been a partner agency of the Houston Food Bank for almost 25 years. The organization’s mission is to serve as an interfaith association of congregations covenanted to promote the self-sufficiency of its clients by assisting them with basic needs.  In addition to food, clients will receive references for food pantries in their neighborhoods.

Those interested in volunteering at the emergency pantry can contact EAC Volunteer Coordinator Marian Bryant.
