Food Bank partners with long term disaster food pantries for continued Hurricane Harvey relief
Montgomery County, Texas – As we roll into the upcoming spring season, the devastation and impact of Hurricane Harvey’s wrath from last August still remains. In addition to rebuilding or re-establishing their homes, many folks are still in need of basic necessities – namely food – until they can get back on their feet.
In support of that need, the Montgomery County Food Bank is partnering with other county-wide organizations to support their long-term disaster food pantries.
“As we all know, there are still so many Montgomery County residents dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey,” said Allison Hulett, President and CEO of Montgomery County Food Bank. “The flood waters have long receded, but we will be managing those effects for many months, if not years, to come through our organization’s support of local food pantries for the on-going need.”
Hulett urges residents who were affected by Hurricane Harvey and need food to visit one of the following long-term disaster food pantries:

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 have built it into an organization capable of distributing over 10 million pounds of food annually. The Food Bank also hosts mobile food pantries and food fairs, offers nutritional education programs and emergency assistance, and provides meal programs for 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.
