September 2022 Food Distribution Feeds Hundreds of Neighbors in Need

On Saturday, September 17, 2022, Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) hosted a drive- thru food giveaway distributing food, along with fans, to help Houstonians beat the heat.

Fresh fruit and vegetables, along with non-perishable foods, were distributed to 400 families on a first-come, first-served basis.

In addition to food, the first 200 families received fans to help keep cool, courtesy of TXU Energy and Jarvis Johnson, State Representative, District 139.

 “We’re always glad to help any way we can,” said Brian Carr, NAM’s Chief Advancement Officer. “It’s an added bonus today that not only can we supply them with food, but we can help them keep cool as well.”

 "My family just needed help. Its been really hard for us,” said one   client, who was   among the first in line by arriving at NAM before 6   a.m.  that morning. “When I saw   that ya’ll were helping everybody   and  all the zip codes that were included, I was so   happy because   there’s not many of organizations that give help in the zip code where    I live.” 

 “I’m just so grateful to be a recipient of what NAM has to offer,” said   another first time   client who received groceries. “NAM is a vital part of   our community and they uplift us   in so many ways. I’m so thankful for   what they do.”
