865,000 individuals need assistance with food each year in Houston and throughout southeast Texas.
Nearly 900,000 people live in poverty in our 18-county area (15% of the population).
One in four children in Harris County lives at or below poverty level.
After reading these facts the Houston office knew what we needed to do! Last Friday the Houston office interns and their fellow consultants spent the afternoon at the Houston Food Bank working to prepare almost 4,000 pounds of food. The day consisted of chopping hundreds of onions; shredding 120 pounds of cabbage; carving nearing 560 pounds of pork; dicing 320 pounds of cantaloupe; peeling 250 pounds of carrots; opening cans of peaches, water chestnuts, and apple sauce; and using gourmet skills to flavor 360 pounds of chicken breast.
