This is so, so exciting what – together!!! – has been accomplished this year! How generous everyone has been to help those in need in Galveston County! AND what is SO IMPORTANT to share with each of your staffs and employees…. that even with so many of us impacted by “Harvey”…. we still topped our totals from last year! and 2016 had been our best year to date… until THIS YEAR!

“All total, the Food Bank calculates our efforts providing at 20,051 meals. Last year, 15,532 lbs of food items were collected totaling 18,641 meals.”
