Houston Food Bank

Fight Hunger with the Houston Food Bank!

Your time is a gift to kids, seniors and others who may not have enough to eat. Volunteers produce the equivalent of a meal a minute while helping the Houston Food Bank sort, process and pack food. And it's fun! Just minutes from downtown, you can volunteer in our Portwall warehouse sorting and packing or helping to prepare meals in our new state-of-the-art Kitchen or lending a hand in our Teachers Aid Center or at one of our off-site volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer opportunities for individuals, corporations, schools, faith based and community organizations and others: Help out while sharing the value of volunteering with those you learn with, worship with, play with or work with - and have a blast doing it!

Required Service Hours: For those who must complete mandated community service, or required hours for government-funded programs.

Volunteer Leadership Programs: Take your commitment to FIGHT HUNGER to the next level and become one of our volunteer leaders, trained and experienced in coordinating HFB volunteer activities.
