The holiday season is around the corner, and H-E-B is excited to welcome back our neighbors as we prepare to celebrate at our annual H-E-B Feast of Sharing dinners.
This year, H-E-B’s Mobile Kitchens will serve traditional Texas-style meals at all its dinner locations in the state. Each event is filled with music, activities for the family, and a variety of free services such as health and wellness screenings and flu shots. Some gatherings will even get a visit from Santa! In select cities, H-E-B Partners (employees) and other volunteers will deliver holiday meals to homebound seniors and others who are unable to attend the event. In Houston, H-E-B will hold a Feast of Sharing drive-thru meal distribution with plans to give out more than 20,000 meals.
H-E-B Feast of Sharing is a series of festive gatherings that serve more than 340,000 meals served at 34 dinners throughout Texas and Mexico. Filled with food, music, and good cheer, these free holiday feasts are open to the public and bring together family, friends and neighbors. Launched in 1989, H-E-B Feast of Sharing gives the company an opportunity to give thanks to its loyal customers and invites everyone to our holiday dinner table. In the more than three decades H-E-B has held the celebrations, more than 375,000 volunteers have helped serve nearly four million meals.
Additionally, as part of this year’s Feast of Sharing, H-E-B’s Hunger Relief team and Operation Appreciation program will extend their support by sending holiday care packages to more than 1,000 H-E-B Partners and U.S. military servicemembers currently serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.
This initiative is an important part of H-E-B’s Hunger Relief Program, which works year-round to prevent hunger. Last year, H-E-B’s Hunger Relief Program donated 34 million pounds of food to families in need. Since 1982, the year the program was founded, H-E-B has donated more than 1 billion pounds of food to 5,500 non-profit organizations in Texas and Mexico.
