Harvey relief efforts at Friday Night Bites

September’s Friday Night Bites was more than just food and fun, it was an opportunity for people to help those that were impacted by the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey.

Houston’s First Baptist Church and the Bridgeland team before the supplies were taken for distribution.

More than 2,000 attended the event on Friday to enjoy live music and a variety of cuisine from 14 food trucks and vendors. The festivities created the perfect opportunity to join together and collect supplies for families in need. The donated items have been given to Bridgeland’s Churches – The Foundry and Houston’s First Baptist Church. Their teams are working to get the supplies into the hands of families trying to recover from the storm’s impact.

Additionally, all food trucks donated a portion of their proceeds to the  United Way Relief Fund established by The Howard Hughes Corporation in response to Hurricane Harvey.  Food for First Responders, a collection of food truck owners who are feeding first responders and volunteers in the area at no charge, will also be receiving some of the proceeds. These funds will continue to help feed those that are helping our community to recover.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the night possible. The supplies and funds that were collected will make a difference in the lives of many people.

Save the date for next month’s event! Friday Night Bites will be held on Oct. 13 from 5 to 9 PM (note the new fall hours) and more info will be coming soon.
