The demand for food assistance has doubled and, in some cases, tripled at Houston-area food banks and distribution sites.

Due to massive layoffs and many families going weeks without work, people are struggling to put food on the table.

To meet this increased demand while staying socially distant, churches, schools and nonprofits are implementing new strategies to reach as many people as possible in a secure way.

Below are some ways for families to access food, during a time when so many are in need.

One of the best ways to find a food pantry is through the Houston Food Bank’s full list of partner organizations and food pantries, which includes a map to nearby locations.

The Houston Independent School District has opened up food distribution sites at local schools. Which sites are open, and when they are open, changes on a daily basis. Each distribution location and the time and day they’re open is reflected in the map below.

 

Like many food pantries, Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston has adapted their food distribution so they put food directly in people’s cars. They’ve also started a delivery service for the elderly. Though they’re not taking food or clothing donations at this time, they are accepting financial gifts through their Pandemic Relief Fund. They also have a COVID Assistance Line at 713-874-6521 and are offering rental assistance and other help.

Their three pantry locations are still operating:

Guadalupe Center
326 S. Jensen Drive (MAP)
Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to noon
Drive-through, no appointments needed

Mamie George Community Center
1111 Collins Road, Richmond (MAP)
Tuesday and Thursday 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Drive-through, no appointments needed

Beacon of Hope Food Pantry
4700 Broadway, Suite F-103, Galveston (MAP)
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 1 p.m
By appointment only — call 409-762-2064

ECHOS (Epiphany Community Health Outreach Services) largely serves immigrant families in the Houston area. They’ve seen demand more than double at their food pantry.

9600 S. Gessner, Building E

Monday-Tuesday, Thursday-Friday 8:00 a.m. until supplies last

The West Houston Assistance Ministries (WHAM) food bank has moved to drive-though only. Families are limited to come once every two weeks.

10501 Meadowglen Lane

Monday – Friday 10:30 a.m. until supplies last

Weekly food drives:

Thursdays 10 a.m. until supplies last at St. Paul's/San Pablo Episcopal Church, 7843 Park Place Blvd. (church parking lot)

Fridays 2 p.m. – 5 p.m. at Houston Classical Charter School (HCCS), 6403 Addicks-Clodine Road

A time for giving

December 11, 2012

Jim Townsend

HOUSTON — Several of the area’s Catholic services organizations are working to bring Christmas cheer to thousands of area residents who would not otherwise receive.

Catholic Charities’ 19th annual Share Your Blessings program will touch more than 5,000 clients enrolled in the organization’s many services — helping to bring Christmas to expectant mothers, orphans, families, refugees and seniors throughout Harris and Fort Bend counties. It’s the organization’s biggest-ever drive, expanded to meet the needs to a fast-growing impoverished population. 

The organization will accept donations of newly purchased items and gift cards until Dec. 16 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Catholic Charities’ main office at 2900 Louisiana St., in Houston. Monetary donations can also be made.

Ten-dollar gift cards from Walmart or CVS Pharmacy are especially appreciated to help seniors pay for prescription medicines. Suggestions for age-appropriate gifts for children can be found on the organization’s Share Your Blessings pages: www.catholiccharities.org/syb.

Donations can be made online by following the “Donate” link on the Share Your Blessings Page, or call 713-874-6733. 

Volunteers are needed to staff gift-distribution parties Dec. 19 and 20 at the main office, and Dec. 21 and 22 at apartment complexes for refugees: catholiccharities.org/angelswanted.

Christy Salinas, Catholic Charities volunteer coordinator, said volunteers are needed to give local Catholic Charities’ clients plenty of warm smiles as gifts are distributed.

“A lot of churches are doing toy drives,” Salinas said. “We’ll pick up those toys and have our volunteers go through the toys and shop for our clients. Each child will get three gifts. At least one or two ‘big’ items and the third item will be something small, so that we can try to equalize all the gifts that are being distributed to families.”

Of the 5,000 individuals in the Share Your Blessings database, Salinas said there are at least 1,000 families listed, nearly half of them recently resettled refugees. 

“We’re also getting grocery gift cards A lot of our seniors need those to get their medications or stuff that food stamps can’t provide.”
Volunteers may contact Salinas at 713-874-6732 or [email protected] for more information.

The St. Vincent de Paul Society (SVDP) is conducting a food drive in conjunction with the Houston Food Bank and Channel 13’s Share Your Holidays food drive. It’s one of many ongoing initiatives. 

The SVDP is reaching out to families, schools and companies to help create Christmas dinner “food baskets” for needy families. Canned or dry-mix foods are sought, including canned yams, cranberries and vegetables, rice or beans, boxes of stuffing, cake mixes — traditional holiday fare, perhaps a holiday decoration. All food items must be in their original, unopened packages. Twenty-dollar gift cards from local grocery stores — to help pay for a turkey or ham — are also appreciated. 

Donations can be dropped off Tuesday through Saturday at SVDP pantry locations: La Petite Food Depot at 5236 Cedar in Bellaire, and at the John L. Food Depot at 6654 Gulf Frwy. in Houston.

For more information, visit SVDPHouston.org or contact Michelle Gonzalez, director of communications and volunteer support, at 713-741-8234, [email protected] or Director of development Laura Schlameus at 832-538-0325.

Members of the Archdiocesan Choir, under the direction of Dr. Rick Lopez, will be performing at five Texas Department of Criminal Justice prisons on Saturday, Dec. 15, according to Deacon Eddie Stoughton, associate director of Correctional Ministries.

Lopez, Associate Director at the Office of Worship, said this will be the third year that members of the Archdiocesan Choir have visited correctional facilities in the greater Houston area. 

“This year we will be visiting four units and presenting a 30-minute program at each of traditional carols and Christmas songs for the inmates on Saturday December 15th,” Lopez said.

Residents of Angela House, a home for women recently released from incarceration, have a busy Advent season, according to Executive Director Sister Maureen O’Connell, OP. Events at the residence for the remainder of the season include:
• Dec. 11: The Angela House Players present “Christmas Readers Theater”;
• Dec. 14: Resident therapist Teresa Doyle hosts her annual Christmas Brunch with current and past residents coming together to share a meal and friendship; and 
• Dec. 15: A Christmas visit from Mt. Rose Missionary Church.

Update (9/1/2017): There is no housing on campus available to faculty at this time.

Join the Faculty Helping Faculty During Harvey Facebook group jointly created by the Faculty Senate and the Office of the Provost to help communicate with faculty as we recover from Hurricane Harvey. While this is not an official UH website, membership in the group is actively managed and requires UH faculty credentials. The site provides a survey tool to match the disaster needs of displaced UH faculty with faculty colleagues offering various types of support (housing, food, transportation, etc.).

Join the Facebook Group

Have you been affected by the storm? Are you in need of accommodation or other help/resources? Or were you fortunate and got through the storm without experiencing serious issues? Through this survey, we are collecting information on help you may be able to provide or help you may need from others. Our Faculty Senate team will then work on matching your resources with someone in need (or vice versa).

The demand for food assistance has doubled and, in some cases, tripled at Houston-area food banks and distribution sites.

Due to massive layoffs and many families going weeks without work, people are struggling to put food on the table.

To meet this increased demand while staying socially distant, churches, schools and nonprofits are implementing new strategies to reach channel 13 news houston food bank many people as possible in a secure way.

Below are some ways for families to access food, during a time when so many are in need.

One of the best ways to find a food pantry is through the Houston Food Bank’s full list of partner organizations and food pantries, which includes a map to nearby locations.

The Houston Independent School District has opened up food distribution sites at local schools. Which sites are open, and when they are open, changes on a daily basis. Each distribution location and the time and day they’re open is reflected in the map below.

 

Like many food pantries, Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston has adapted their food distribution so they put food directly in people’s cars. They’ve also started a delivery service for the elderly. Though they’re not taking food or clothing donations at this time, they are accepting financial gifts through their Pandemic Relief Channel 13 news houston food bank. They also have a COVID Assistance Line at 713-874-6521 and are offering rental assistance and other help.

Food banks call for volunteer help amid rising costs, high demand

As families deal with rising grocery costs, local food assistance programs have been similarly affected by high prices.

The nation’s food banks are now struggling with inflation, fueled by the global supply chain crisis. It comes at the same time demand has increased just before the holiday season. 

At the Greater Cleveland Food Bank, volunteers will distribute more than 1 million pounds of food each week in November to meet the growing need.

MORE COMPANIES HIKING PRICES AS INFLATION, SUPPLY CHAIN WOES CONTINUE

"We gear up for the holidays months in advance and they are upon. The fact is the need for emergency food has never been higher than it has been during the pandemic," said Kristin Warzocha, the organization’s president and CEO.

Warzocha explained prices have soared for even the most essential foods.

"This year we ordered six truckloads of turkeys; the cost of every turkey is up 20%. Things like peanut butter, a staple for families across our community and a staple that we distribute at the food banks, is up 40%," Warzocha said. "We had orders that were canceled at the last minute, we had orders that were bought out from under us from someone paying more."

Brian Greene, president and CEO of the Houston Food Bank, told Fox News the cost to store and transport food has also increased.

"It isn't just the food, we also go through thousands of boxes a week and those costs have gone up significantly, pallets have doubled, just the equipment we use has been harder to get and it's more expensive," Green said. 

As many as 42 million people, including 13 million children, in the U.S. could face food insecurity in 2021 according to Feeding America, a network of more than 200 food banks across the country.

To meet the demand, food banks across the country have been forced to adapt. 

"That could be working with brand substitutions, working with our vendors to alter delivery times," said Catherine Shick, a spokesperson for FeedMore Western New York. "We are trying everything in our power to be as flexible as we can to maximize our cost savings."

In Houston, Greene is also encouraging volunteers to pitch in as they did before the pandemic.

"Most of our labor is done by volunteers this is true of Houston Food Bank and it's true of Feeding America food banks in general. Now the pandemic was a real blow to the volunteer pool, people are starting to come back so we’re really trying to get people to come back because we’ve got a lot of work to do," said Greene. 

One resource to find your local food bank is FeedingAmerica.org.

  1. As someone who recruits staff, I would say that there is no “perfect universal” resume format. The people reviewing C.V’s are individuals aswell & have their own thoughts/preferences on the matter.
