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 and 77009. In March we added zip code 77022.   We are open Thursday evenings 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. and Saturday mornings 10 a.m. until noon.

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.
