Food Bank Information

To get help for yourself or community,  call 2-1-1 or your local food bank to learn about public food distributions and open agencies.

For a list of food pantries and other food assistance, contact the Houston Food Bank at, or call 832-369-9390.For disaster food stamp benefits, reach the Disaster Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (DSNAP) at 1-877-541-7905.

Once a federal disaster area is declared, Texas will also have the option to activate “D-SNAP,” a federally-funded program that provides food relief through EBT debit cards. However, community leaders in affected areas have to activate the program. They can do that by petitioning Texas Health & Human Services Commission at 877-787-8999.
