Houston Food Bank

Individuals who receive a court order to perform community service, or who must perform community service to qualify for WorkSource or Houston Housing, may complete their hours at the Houston Food Bank.

The Houston Food Bank's Blue Badge Volunteer Program is an alternative which helps individuals complete their required community service hours in a friendly, safe, climate controlled, and structured environment. Volunteer shifts are available Monday through Saturday, morning, afternoon, evening and some late evening.
