Texans "Sacks for Hunger" raises $47k for HFB

Posted May 30, 2013

H-E-B and the Houston Texans are proud to present the Houston Food Bank with $47,000 through the H-E-B Sacks for Hunger program.


HOUSTON – H-E-B and the Houston Texans are proud to present the Houston Food Bank with $47,000 through the H-E-B Sacks for Hunger program. This translates into 141,000 meals for hungry Houstonians. 
Starting with the 2010 NFL season, H-E-B has partnered annually with the Houston Texans on the Sacks for Hunger promotion as part of the company’s ongoing support of the Houston Food Bank. Through the program, H-E-B pledged to donate $1,000 to the Houston Food Bank each time the Texans defense sacked the opponent’s quarterback during the regular season and playoffs. 
The Texans defense recorded 47 sacks in 2013, including the playoffs, resulting in a Sacks for Hunger donation of $47,000. J.J. Watt accounted for 22 of the team’s 47 sacks, meaning that he personally supplied 66,000 meals for hungry Houstonians.
            The Houston Food Bank feeds 137,000 people each week by distributing food through nearly 500 hunger relief agencies in 18 southeast Texas counties, including church pantries, homeless shelters, safe havens and nutrition sites for children and the elderly.  Thanks to strong community partnerships, the Houston Food Bank is able to stretch every $1 donation to provide a full day of meals for one person. 
H-E-B is proud to serve as the largest contributor to food banks in the state of Texas.
