Houston Restaurant Weeks was established in 2003 by Cleverley Stone, host of “The Cleverley Show,” a food talk radio program on CBS Sports Radio 650/KIKK-AM Houston and 6 1/2 year food segment contributor to Houston’s Fox 26 Morning News. To date, the event has raised more than $4.3 million to fight hunger in Houston. The HRW team of volunteers donate their time to produce the event so that 100% of the donations raised go directly to the Houston Food Bank.
Now operating from a new, 308,000 square-foot facility, the Houston Food Bank is the nation’s largest size Feeding America food bank and source of food for hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties. They have been named one of 10 Top-Notch Charities across the nation by Charity Navigator. A network of 500 food pantries, soup kitchens, senior centers and other agencies, feeding a total of 137,000 people each week, provides 64 million nutritious meals annually. Fresh produce, meat and nonperishables are distributed from the new warehouse at 535 Portwall, and hot meals are prepared and distributed from Keegan Center, a 15,000 square-foot industrial kitchen.
Additional community services range from nutrition education to assistance with food stamp applications and hands-on job training. Red Barrels offer a convenient way for grocery shoppers to donate nonperishables for their neighbors in need. The Houston Food Bank, founded in 1982, is a certified member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network. The organization plans to grow to an annual distribution of 100 million nutritious meals by 2018.
