The Houston Food Bank is calling for volunteers to help pack food kits for those quarantined as a result of the coronavirus. The non-profit is also asking for help in making kits for seniors, or for our neighbors who do not have reserves of food and are currently struggling to make ends meet.

The food bank is ensuring that volunteers are safe and are taking extra precautions. They are cleaning and disinfecting the facility more often and are also keeping people a good distance apart.

To sign up for a volunteer shift(s), please register online at houstonfoodbank.org!
