How We’re Responding to the Coronavirus Pandemic
From El Paso to Houston to Laredo, food banks across state are doing what they do best – feeding community members in need. The Feeding Texas network is the largest hunger-relief organization in Texas, ready to respond to disasters and national emergencies like COVID-19.
The most vulnerable people in our communities need us now more than ever. Here’s how we’re responding to the challenge:
- Launched a statewide fundraising effort to support people facing hunger and the food banks who help them.
- Coordinating communications between member food banks and partners like TDEM, FEMA, and Texas HHSC to enact the best health and safety practices and emergency food delivery methods.
- Working with government leaders to ensure the emergency response includes strong support and flexibility for federal nutrition programs including the School Lunch Program.
- Safely continuing distribution of food and non-food and household items like cleaning supplies, diapers and personal care products.
To learn more about the response in your community and how you can help, find your local food bank.
