To be confirmed.

Second Servings is Houston’s only prepared and perishable food rescue organization. With 16% of the Houston community facing food insecurity and nearly 40% of the available food supply wasted, Second Servings is on a mission to alleviate hunger and reduce waste by rescuing surplus food from businesses and conducting free, same-day delivery to over 90 Houston-area shelters, soup kitchens, low-income housing and other nonprofits. Charity recipients receive upscale, chef-prepared banquet meals, fresh produce, meat and dairy products, grab ‘n go items, gourmet cupcakes, freshly baked artisan bread, healthy snacks and much more from over 250 food donors across the city. This food helps nourish abused women and children, at-risk youth, veterans, adults in recovery, disabled homeless seniors, low-income single adults and families and many others. Since the organization began operations in 2015, Second Servings of Houston has rescued and delivered over 3 million pounds of food, valued at more than $20 million, to Houstonians in need.
