Beck Redden helped fight hunger with mops as several of our attorneys and summer associates helped tidy up the Houston Food Bank.  Partners Jeff M. Golub and Alex B. Roberts, and Associate Kyle Lawrence were put to work as they volunteered last week along with summer associates George Hayek, Joshua Rocha, and John Noh.

Houston Food Bank

The Houston Food Bank is America’s largest food bank in distribution to its network of 600 hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties. Named top charity in Texas by Charity Navigator for financial performance and accountability, the Houston Food Bank provides 74 million nutritious meals to food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding 800,000 people each year. Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from the warehouse at 535 Portwall, and hot meals are prepared and distributed from Keegan Center, a 15,000 square foot industrial kitchen. Additional community services range from nutrition education to assistance with food stamp applications and hands-on job training. Red Barrels offer a convenient way for grocery shoppers to donate nonperishables for their neighbors in need.
