Time is a gift to hungry kids, seniors, and others who may not have enough to eat. Volunteers produce the equivalent of a meal a minute while helping the Houston Food Bank sort, process, and pack food. And it’s fun! You can volunteer in our warehouse or help prepare meals for kids in our Keegan Kitchen.
