Return to Houston Food Bank

Welcome to our Matching Gift and Volunteer Grant Resource Page

The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is America’s largest food bank in distribution to its network of nearly 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties.  Named top charity in Texas by Charity Navigator for financial performance and accountability, the Food Bank provides 74 million nutritious meals to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding 800,000 people each year, with plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018.

Additional community services range from nutrition education to assistance with food stamp applications and hands-on job training.  

Many corporations match employee donations, and if you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.

Thanks for checking to see if your company offers these programs!
