About

Come do Double duty--Help feed Houston's hungry and get your steps in for the day!!

Here at the St. Vincent de Paul (SVDP), Gulf Freeway location, we host Food Fairs on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month. 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 (HFB) 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 is fast paced and time flies!!!

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! Come make a big impact on the community with your smile and servant heart.
