Our WONDERFUL donation box excepts donations 24  7  365 days a year.
Who is Frank?
Our donation box is named “Frank” in honor of Franklin Caraway,
a lifelong member of St. Mark’s United Methodist Church.
Frank was a devoted supporter of the HIM Food Pantry since opening.
When he could no longer do the shopping himself, Frank asked friends to 
shop the weekly grocery store specials on his behalf and had the food delivered to the pantry.
Frank passed away in 2013 but through his generous endowment and long-term vision, the HIM Food Pantry 
is able to provide fresh fruit and vegetables each week to our clients.  His endowment is in honor of
his parents, Roy and Corrine Caraway.
Thank you, Frank for caring about your neighbors.

5 years of Neighbors Helping Neighbors End Hunger

The Heights Interfaith Ministries Food Pantry opened its doors June 25, 2009 to serve families in the zip codes 77007, 77008, 77009, and 77022.   We are open Thursday evenings 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday mornings 10 a.m. until noon.

100% Funded by donations.

We are 100% volunteer based with over 21,000 volunteer hours since opening.  Our youngest volunteer is 4 and our oldest is 87.

We are a “Client Choice” Pantry, our clients choose their own food with the help of volunteers.  We provide meat, eggs, produce and toiletries with each order.   With the help of the community, each year we are growing to serve the needs of the neighbors.

Our funding comes from donations from our sponsor community organizations, member churches, individuals, and annual fund-raising events. We are a proud member of the Houston Food Bank. About 80% of our food comes from the Houston Food Bank, the balance is from donations with a small portion being purchased from funds of the Heights Interfaith Ministries.
