Rockstar Capital Donates 1000 Meals to Houston Food Bank
Right now, one in five people in southeast Texas don’t have enough to eat. Rockstar Capital’s donation of 1000 meals will help provide food and hope to hungry children, families and seniors right here in our community. When we all come together, we can fight hunger in southeast Texas. If you are able to make a donation to support those impacted, your gift will fill boxes with food for our neighbors across our 18-county service area. Because of Houston Food Bank’s partnerships with manufacturers and distributors, they are able to turn one dollar in to providing someone with access to three meals. You can donate to Houston Food Bank here.
If you are unable to monetarily donate to the Houston Food Bank, they currently have a need for more volunteers to help them perform necessary tasks. Below are the ways you can donate your time.

Safety for Volunteers
Per Houston Food Bank’s website;
“As always, the health and safety of partners, staff and the community is Houston Food Bank’s number-one priority. We are following CDC recommended sterilization procedures and have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, especially around high-traffic areas (volunteer areas, elevators, meeting rooms, bathrooms, food areas).
We are practicing social distancing with our volunteers asking them to stay at least an arm’s length away from other volunteers.
Volunteers working warehouse projects are required to wash hands before their shift starts, during breaks, when they switch projects, and after their shift. Gloves are also available for wear for warehouse projects.
To help slow the spread of COVID-19, the CDC is now recommending using a cloth face covering in public settings. Therefore, Houston Food Bank is asking all volunteers to bring their own face coverings when coming to volunteer. The CDC has provided helpful tutorials on making your own masks from various materials and with varying degrees of craft skill needed.
Established food safety rules while working in our Keegan Kitchen requires the use of gloves at all times, stricter hand washing rules, and not working inside the kitchen when experiencing illness symptoms.”
