Target Hunger Responds to Flooding Following Hurricane Harvey

HOUSTON - Target Hunger stands with the City of Houston and its residents as we all recover from the catastrophic floods caused by Hurricane Harvey. Our thoughts and prayers are with all who have lost life and property during this devastating storm.
 
In the coming days, weeks and months, Target Hunger will coordinate with our community partners, faith partners and governmental agencies to distribute food, water, essential supplies and information from multiple service sites to our neighbors in need. We will be available to assist regular clients who experience daily vulnerabilities to hunger and food insecurity and have been affected by Harvey, as well as new clients recovering from the Harvey floods.
 

Since Target Hunger operates in neighborhoods that are “food deserts,” our role in the recovery effort is a critical one. The northeast Houston neighborhoods we serve were some of the hardest hit by the floods. In response to the damage and destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, Target Hunger will operate several distribution points so that affected residents may access emergency food, water, cleaning supplies and other essential items, including baby food and formula. Donations may be dropped off Monday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. at Target Hunger, 2814 Quitman Street (intersection of Highway 59 and Quitman).
