We distribute fresh produce, meat and nonperishables from our warehouse at 535 Portwall, where we also prepare nutritious hot meals for kids in our new state-of-the-art Keegan Kitchen.

We feed hungry people in our 18-county service area alongside our partner food banks in Montgomery County, Galveston and Brazos Valley.
