Houston Meals Financial institution is opening a brand new warehouse to satisfy the wants created by the COVID-19 pandemic
HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Houston Food Bank has a new warehouse to meet the growing needs they are seeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We rock and roll. We have products that go in and out,” says Regi Young, chief strategy officer.
The Food Bank rented a 128,000 square foot warehouse in Knobcrest north of the Beltway off I-45 in north Houston. Food Bank staff tell ABC13 that this new warehouse will help reduce stress and demand in their main warehouse.
“This camp will allow us to bring more food resources into the community and try to meet the needs created by COVID-19 and the economy,” says Young.
The new warehouse is mainly used for mobile distributions and home deliveries.
The food bank also hosts on-site volunteers who help build kits and disaster boxes. You can volunteer in two shifts on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Visit the Houston Food Bank website to sign up as a volunteer.
