NAM TO HOST NEIGHBORHOOD SUPER SITE FOOD GIVEAWAY IN SPRING, TX

HOUSTON, TX — Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM), in partnership with the Houston Food Bank and Spring ISD, will host a Neighborhood Super Site Food Giveaway on August 11, August 25, and September 8, 2020, between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Planet Ford Stadium in Spring, TX.

“We are so pleased to be partnering with the Houston Food Bank and Spring ISD to provide groceries to families in our community suffering from food insecurity during this difficult time,” said Les Cave, President & CEO of NAM. “We look forward to providing this service on a larger scale so we can help even more families who are struggling right now.”

Free groceries will be handed out to 2,500 families during each distribution date on a first-come, first-serve basis at 23802 Cypresswood Drive, Spring, TX 77373. Everyone entering the parking lot for food must stay in their vehicle and will be served in the order of arrival. Groceries will be distributed via a drive-thru system while supplies last. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and non-perishable foods will be carried to each car by a volunteer and placed inside the trunk. Please bring your photo ID and wear a mask.

NAM also needs an army of volunteers to help on the days of the Neighborhood Super Site Food Giveaways to unload food from the trucks, direct traffic, and carry food to cars. Volunteers will be required to wear a face mask, have their temperature checked upon arrival, and social distancing will be enforced. NAM will provide disposable gloves, water, and snacks for all volunteers. If you would like to participate in this volunteer opportunity please call Crystal Ortiz at (281) 885-4604 or email volunteer@namonline.org.
