About

Through various grants and donations, Food Project is a mutual aid project where Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and other folks of color and their families can order the fresh and shelf-stable foods they want and need. Volunteers and organizers then help to set up the items from vendors, purchase any other items from HEB, pack orders, support the pick up and delivery of recipients' orders, and clean up the set up at the end of the day.
