Houston, August, 2013
reLogistics Services is donating reusable boxes to the Houston Food Bank, a non-profit organization that is a source of food for hunger relief charities in 18 southeast Texas counties and serves 137,000 people each week. Houston Food Bank distributes fresh produce, meat and nonperishable foods from its new warehouse at 535 Portwall, and also prepares and distributes hot meals from Keegan Center, its 15,000 square-foot industrial kitchen. The boxes from reLogistics will be crucial to delivering these much-needed foods to Houston Food Bank member agencies, including food pantries, meal sites, shelters, and children’s after-school programs.
The food bank recently moved into a new 308,000 square-foot facility, enabling them to better serve the needs of the hungry. “reLogistics Services is humbled to be able to assist the Houston Food Bank’s efforts to distribute food throughout the Houston region. As a Houston-based company, we pride ourselves on doing the right thing for the community while diverting product from entering the waste stream,” said Mike Hachtman, reLogistics President and CEO.
reLogistics Services will donate more than 21,000 boxes annually to the Houston Food Bank to assist them in delivering more than 64 million nutritious meals. “Houston Food Bank is thankful to reLogistics for such a crucial donation – without boxes, we are unable to package and deliver food for distribution to the hungry. The donation also offsets additional costs we would otherwise incur, and allows us to provide even more meals for the hungry,” said John Kreger, Director of Product Resources for Houston Food Bank.
