They have completed Food wastage Survey. In addition to volunteers, the center has identified 4 potential donor organizations and actively pursuing one of them to initiative donations. The center is working with Second Servings of Houston and rescuing approximately 160 lbs of bread every Saturday. This is integrated with Bread & Sandwich service activity on Sunday. The Sandwich bags are delivered to Turning point, Women’s Shelter and Downtown.
In addition to this, the center has identified one new recipient “The Ballard House” to bring food in Katy.
