Our mission: Leading the fight against hunger!

Our target: Kids, seniors and others who may not have enough to eat

Our job: Produce the equivalent of a meal, sort, process and pack food

The partnership between AWIS and the Houston Food Bank is a great opportunity for professional women in STEM fields to give back to the community by helping the food bank allocate their meals to those in need. As professional scientists, we know how important it is to eat healthy nutritious food to function properly on a daily basis. Let’s help the fight against HUNGER!
