THE WOODLANDS, TX – Montgomery County Food Bank released a report that shows significant assistance was provided to local residents in July. During that month, 637,880 meals were served to 75,447 people. More than one million lbs of food was – 374,000 lbs of it produce – was served to food-insecure, elderly, and nonambulatory people.

Demand is high, supply is low

Such large numbers require equally large donations of either foodstuffs or funds. According to MCFB, every dollar donated provides up to four meals. Unfortunately, the shelves at the distribution center of the food bank are being depleted at an alarming rate, and the donation of nonperishable, in-date food items is essential.

Beyond asking for individual donations, the food bank enjoys strong relationships with local companies. Mrs. Baird’s donated 1,500 loaves of bread to MCFB. The annual Houston Restaurant Weeks – currently running through Labor Day – is benefiting the food bank. Kroger enjoys the recognition of being a Platinum Level Hunger Hero through its donation of $100,000, which went to providing up to 400,000 meals. And Cowboy Kia recently announced that Shootout Hunger, the fundraiser it is presenting on September 15 at Blackwood Sporting Co. in Conroe, is sold out.

A total of 4,718 volunteer hours was also served in July, with hundreds of altruistic residents wanting to feed the bodies and souls of those in need.
