The Houston Food Bank, a nonprofit hunger relief organization that provides the community with access to nutritious meals every day, partnered with First Choice Emergency Room to host a summer food drive. With the help of the Tomball community, First Choice Emergency Room collected nearly 1,000 pounds of food across all 22 Houston facilities. The items collected will be sent to the Houston Food Bank, and First Choice Emergency Room will also make a $1,000 donation which will provide around 3,000 meals to the local community.
Historically, the summer months are the slowest time for food donations and yet the hungriest season of the year, as school is no longer in session and children lose their access to daily breakfast and lunch. The success of this drive would not have been possible without the support and generosity of the local community!
