Alex and Reagan teamed up with the Houston Food Bank and Houston Independent School District volunteers to distribute food to area residents who are experiencing food insecurities during the pandemic.

The event was held at NRG Park and was organized so that social distancing rules could be maintained and volunteers could easily load food into people’s trunks, minimizing contact.

Seeing the work put in by so many volunteers in person to support families who are suffering from COVID-19 has been a truly humbling experience.

100% of the $1.5 million raised by Bregman’s FEEDHOU campaign goes directly to the Houston Food Bank.

The event drew close to 10K vehicles and also included a separate area for families who didn’t have vehicles to be able to walk up and receive food.

The vehicles driving up received 80lbs of frozen protein, bread, fresh produce, and non-perishables. Walk-ups were given about 25lbs of the same type of goods.

During the event, Mayor Sylvester Turner and a congresswoman Shiela Jackson Lee and other officials stopped by to give praise to everyone’s efforts.

Alex also was given a special thanks by the mayor and was included in the mayor’s press conference yesterday.

FEEDHOU is now just over $1.5 million as of yesterday.
