Food Pantries

Like shelters, food pantries need help. Your church may be operating a pantry. Contact your church or the shelters at the phone numbers provided in the linked website to see what help they need. Remember to ask if they have age requirements for volunteers such as high school and above. Addresses, phone numbers, websites and shelter comments for the Houston area may be found at
