About

The St. Vincent de Paul Society's monthly Food Fair is coming up! We need willing volunteers to help pass out bags of pre-packed produce to people who come to us for help.

SVDP partners with the Houston Food Bank to provide nutritious food, including fresh produce and refrigerated items, directly to communities with a high need. 10 pallets of fresh produce/fruit/and bonus items are purchased from HFB and SVDP provides the volunteers to unload, set-up and distribute the food directly to the clients in an outside setting similar to a farmers market. On this day of service we feed approx. 250 families. It’s like a traveling pantry that goes where the needed.

Many of our Houston neighbors rely on us to get their healthy, nutritious fruits and veggies and we need YOU to help us make it happen!

Please contact Michelle for more information and how sign up: 832-538-0323 or volunteer@svdphouston.org.
