Equal Heart remains open and operational, as we are an essential part of the safety net for thousands of families. Staff remains fully committed to our organization's mission of "supporting people in times of adversity".
Our response is three pronged: Emergency Food Programs for Children * Increased Bulk Food Donations for Families *
Provide staffing support to other food non-profits.
We have received invaluable support from an array of funders that sustain us in our mission.
Equal Heart operates a mobile food pantry, Direct to Door, that has come under tremendous strain in response to current economic conditions. As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, community demand has increased and our teams have risen to meet the challenge. Our team delivers food into the community to ease transportation burden on families. Each day we distribute 10,000 pounds of bulk food supplies. During the first eight weeks of our Emergency Response, teams delivered 280,000 pounds of food to feed 12,861 people.
Powering all our programs are AMERICORPS members, who have committed their time to be of service to the community.
We have placed 140 AmeriCorps members at 18 nonprofit partners throughout Texas to support food operations benefitting 300,000 Texans.
