Interfaith of The Woodlands seeks summer food donations for Montgomery County families in need
THE WOODLANDS, TX – One of the few downsides of summer vacation is that too many families rely on school-provided meals for their children, and with school out, those meals are now incumbent on the parents and guardians.
Fortunately, Interfaith of The Woodlands counts among its many programs and services a food pantry. Unfortunately, the sudden increase of families needing help with their mealtimes is a bracing strain on their resources, and they need your help.
The Food Pantry is available to individuals and families who are facing food insecurity. Donations are always needed and appreciated in many forms: financial contributions, non-perishable food, infant products including diapers and formula, personal hygiene items, paper products, cleaning supplies, and gift cards to area grocery stores.
June through August are some of the busiest times for the food pantry, which is expected to feed more than 600 families per month. Donations can be dropped off at 4242 Interfaith Way, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
In Interfaith of The Woodlands’ ongoing drive to ease hunger pains for families in need, it also offers the following services and events:
• Nutrition Every Weekend: provides backpacks of food for children at risk of hunger over the weekend during the school year
• Seniors Eating Well: grocery delivery to homebound senior adults
• On The Go Market Days: mobile food pantry that takes food assistance to high need areas
• Veggie Village: two community gardens that provide fresh organic produce to the Food Pantry
Interfaith also encourages individuals, businesses, and organizations to host their own food drives to benefit Interfaith's food bank; more information can be found at https://woodlandsinterfaith.org/programs-services/food-pantry/#donate
