Come together to give back with your fellow Jumbos!

Join Houston Tufts Alumni as we volunteer together at the Houston Food Bank. Recognized as America’s largest Food Bank, the Houston Food Bank distributes over 122 million nutritious meals through its network of 1,500 community partners in southeast Texas, feeding 800,000 individuals each year.

Most of the volunteer projects at the warehouse involve inspection, sorting, and repackaging of donated food items for community distribution. While a lot of the work requires standing and lifting, we can make accommodations for varying abilities. 

We hope you will join us for this worthy cause!
