There is something you can do to help Houstonions after Harvey. The Houston Food Bank (our nation's largest food bank) supports the children, families and seniors in Southeast Texas who are in need of food, water and supplies. A $10 donation will enable Houston Food Bank to provide 30 meals for hungry neighbors in emergencies and throughout the year. Every year Houston Food Bank feeds 800,000 people through its network of food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies. You can pitch in with donations of $10 (feeds 30), $20 (feeds 60) or $30 (feeds 90), now through the end of September, and 100% of the money donated will go to Houston Food Bank's life-changing work. Once this year's disaster relief and recovery needs have been met, any remaining donations will be used to fund ongoing hunger-relief efforts.
