The Houston Food Bank needs volunteers who can help us outside of our eight walls (that's four walls at our Portwall warehouse and four at our Keegan Kitchen).
We can use help distributing food and even school supplies, and at special events in the community. Please register online if you would like to volunteer for any of these programs.
