Whether preparing sandwiches, cutting up fruit or loading milk containers into coolers, each of Port Houston’s volunteer activities at the Houston Food Bank helped provide more than 11,000 fresh meals to local children through the Keegan Kitchen Program.

More than 65 port employees dedicated part of their workday Aug.14 to helping the Houston Food Bank advance its mission to to lead the fight against hunger.

“Much like the Port of Houston, the Houston Food Bank has a far-reaching, regional impact,” said Port Houston Director of Community Relations and Events Leslie Herbst. Their work provides more than 100 million nutritious meals each year to people in the Houston area and 18 surrounding counties.

The Houston Food Bank opened Keegan Kitchen in 2017 with the purpose of providing up to 20,000 nutritious meals each day to children around Houston. “The Food Bank delivers fun and unique programming for our team each year, and we can always count on their dedicated staff to provide us with memorable and meaningful volunteer experiences,” Herbst said.
