Food Industry Donor
Large-scale food donations from the manufacturing, warehouse, agriculture and food services industries are critical to our mission.
While community food drives and individual donations are extremely valuable, the scale of our work requires the support of donors in the manufacturing, warehouse/logistics, produce/agriculture and food services industries. Only through the ongoing support of food industry donors can we continue to feed 800,000 individuals each year.
The Houston Food Bank accepts perishable, dry or bulk products that are:
- Unlabeled or mislabeled
- Rejected but still safe for human consumption or use
- Discontinued items
- Off spec items
- Damaged items (some restrictions apply)
- Close-dated items
- Various past “best if used by” dated products
