H-E-B’s Help End Hunger Campaign raises $20K for the Montgomery County Food Bank
Montgomery County, TX – During H-E-B’s Help End Hunger campaign, customers were encouraged to donate $1, $3 or $5 at the checkout, adding the amount to their final grocery bill. As a result, $20,000 was raised for the Montgomery County Food Bank.
Help End Hunger, which ran in all H-E-B stores across Texas, provided awareness about hunger issues as well as senior and family nutrition. This action continues H-E-B’s 113-year legacy of contributing to worthy causes throughout the great state of Texas.
“H-E-B has been a longtime hunger relief partner with the Montgomery County Food Bank, and every year helps us to reach our goal of nutritious food on the tables for those that need it in Montgomery County,” said Allison Hulett, Montgomery County Food Bank President and CEO. “Their ‘Help End Hunger’ donation allows us to provide 100,000 meals to children, seniors and families in Montgomery County. We value this partnership with H-E-B and thank them for the incredible support!”
The Montgomery County Food Bank began in 1985 as a door-to-door operation run out of car trunks by a small group of volunteers wanting to serve those in need in their community. Throughout the past 30 years, generous donors and volunteers have built it into an organization capable of distributing over 10 million nutritional pounds of food annually. The Food Bank also hosts mobile food distributions, offers nutritional education programs, emergency assistance in the time of a disaster or crisis, and provides meal programs for children and senior citizens.
Montgomery County Food Bank is 501(c)(3) chartered by the state of Texas and is a member of the Texas Food Bank Network and Feeding America. Its headquarters is located at 1 Food For Life Way in Conroe, near Hwy. 242 and I-45, just north of The Woodlands.
