HOUSTON - As southeast Houston faced historic winter storms, the Houston Food Bank went into disaster mode.
With a number of shelters and warming centers opening throughout the Houston area to help those in need during the historically cold weather, the food bank stepped up to deliver pallets of meals and blankets despite its own challenges.
On Monday and Tuesday, Houston Food Bank was forced to close its offices.
But it continued to serve the community through Ride-Out Teams stationed at both food bank buildings to meet urgent requests.
IF YOU NEED HELP
The Houston Food Bank is still sending out disaster pallets and products.
Please call ahead to confirm if the partner location is open, before heading there.
