As we all watch the impact of Hurricane Harvey in Texas, we at God’s Pantry Food Bank are, like you, wondering how to best be of help. Our disaster response efforts are coordinated through Feeding America to ensure effective and efficient support that addresses the specific needs of our sister food banks in the hurricane’s path.
In the case of Hurricane Harvey, seven Feeding America food banks and subsidiaries serve the affected area: Food Bank of Corpus Christi, Food Bank of the Golden Crescent, Galveston County Food Bank, Houston Food Bank, Montgomery County Food Bank, Southeast Texas Food Bank and San Antonio Food Bank. Feeding America further coordinates with partners including the American Red Cross, FEMA and others to ensure all responses are integrated.
Here at God’s Pantry Food Bank, we are working with other Kentucky food banks to assemble truckloads of specifically requested items to provide immediate relief in Texas. We hope to deliver these supplies as early as the end of this week.
