One of the ways we’ve been able to stretch our food budget here at The Women's Home is by partnering with Second Servings, Houston’s only prepared and perishable food rescue organization.

Since we began our affiliation in 2016, Second Servings has been able to save us about 20% annually, with deliveries of high-quality surplus food from many of their 250 food donors. Several times a week, we receive chef-prepared banquet meals, fresh produce, dairy products, Antone’s Famous Po’ Boy sandwiches, healthy Snap Kitchen meals, gourmet cupcakes and more at NO COST. This gives our residents the opportunity to enjoy upscale food and variety that they might not otherwise experience. In addition, receiving prepared food saves our kitchen staff considerable preparation time. In total, the retail value of the food we’ve received during our partnership over the last 3 years is close to $400,000!

We are so grateful to Second Servings! If you would like more information, please visit their website at
