IFMA Houston Goes to the Houston Food Bank

Join IFMA Houston at the Houston Food Bank!

Space is limited, but we are so excited about this opportunity. Recently, the Houston Food Bank had an accident at their warehouse causing a large portion of their food supply to be ruined. Thankfully, the Houston community stepped in, and they were able to provide meals for those in need in the Houston area during the holidays!

Now, it is our turn to put in some "sweat equity" and help those in need!

Below is some information for those who will be volunteering: 

Once you have registered with IFMA Houston (so we know you are coming), please register with the Houston Food Bank, so you can sign all of the waivers necessary to work when you get there!

SPECIAL NOTES FROM THE HOUSTON FOOD BANK:   

Volunteers MUST be at least 6 years old and supervised by a parent or guardian throughout the shift.

Please plan to arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled volunteer shift so you can check-in, receive instructions and start on time.  If you arrive after the start of your shift, you may have to wait up to 30 minutes for orientation and assignment.  If members of your group arrive late, we cannot guarantee they will be able to join you in your assigned project area.

Directions 

From Downtown:  Take IH-10 east and exit Gellhorn St. (exit #774).  Make a U-turn at Gellhorn, stay on the feeder and turn right on Portwall St.


Parking Information 

If space permits it, you may park in the front parking lot, but in the event of a large volunteer turnout, you may be directed to our overflow lot located behind the building.


Attire Information 

How to Dress?  

Closed-toe shoes REQUIRED - smashed toes are no fun, so we strongly enforce this safety precaution.  Casual dress, long pants (preferred), a t-shirt with sleeves.

Special needs? Just let us know:  If you require any special accommodations just let us know before your volunteer shift so we can plan accordingly.

For your safety, personal belongings are not allowed in project areas:  Due to limited locker space, we ask that you lock your purse, jackets, backpacks and any other valuables in your vehicle before checking-in.

REMEMBER to wear close-toed shoes so your feet are protected and dress in layers so you will be comfortable throughout your shift.  If you are scheduled in our KITCHEN, please wear LONG PANTS - NO SHORTS or JEWELRY allowed.
