Food for Change Fresh Market

The Houston Food Bank is at the forefront of efforts by food banks to use food as a catalyst – in partnership with social service programs – to help individuals achieve their goals. Sharing in their vision for the future of food banking, Food for Change is an innovative strategy that goes beyond emergency food assistance to address the root causes of hunger. Hearts and Hands of Baytown is privileged to be a Food for Change Fresh Market serving both on the healthcare and educational fronts. We are an unrestricted market giving access to program participants across the network.

Food for Change is by appointment only, Tues/Wed/Fri 10am-3pm and the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month 10am-1:30pm.

Participants may call 346-715-2209 to schedule; a Food for Change ID is required to be served in this program.

During COVID, FFC participants are invited to attend our drive-thru distributions. Please continue to refer to this page for updates on reopening.

Senior Box

The Senior Box Program via the Houston Food Bank distributes Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) food from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that is managed by the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) to income-eligible seniors (60+). Just over 11,000 seniors in the Houston area benefit from this federally funded effort. In addition to distributing a monthly box of shelf-stable CSFP food (valued at $50 retail) to clients, the Senior Box Program has expanded its outreach to include distributing produce and other health-related items to seniors both inside and outside of Harris County.
