MLK Day of Service at Houston Food Bank

Monday, January 18, 2021 | 8:00 am to 4:00 pm


The Houston Food Bank honors Martin Luther King’s life and work with activities spotlighting the importance of volunteering and giving to others on MLK Day.

Due to COVID restrictions, the Houston Food Bank will host a Shell Backpack Buddy Food Drive.  People can drive-up and donate non-perishable items to be used in Backpack Buddy sacks which help food-insecure schoolchildren.

Social Distancing & COVID-19

Businesses and organizations in Houston have opened under modified protocols, following guidelines administered by local health officials, the State of Texas and CDC. At this time, guidance from experts urges people to continue wearing face masks when in public spaces, practice social distancing of at least six feet, limit your touching of surfaces and frequently use hand sanitizer or soap and water to keep your hands clean.

Although vaccines have been approved and distribution has begun, supplies are still limited. Health officials have severely cautioned that it will take until late spring 2021 before the U.S. might be able to expect a level of herd immunity. In the meantime, masks are strongly advised to help curb the increasing spread of COVID-19 this winter.

Before heading out, take time to familiarize with your destination’s requirements or restrictions at this moment, and be sure to contact them ahead of time with any questions or concerns.
