KHOU Food Drive: A back to school food drive held in partnership with KHOU-11 to raise food and funds to fight childhood hunger.

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 200 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.

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
