I’m from a small town in central Pennsylvania of about a hundred people, and am a recent transplant to the beautiful city of Houston. I am an officer in the Naval Reserves and a local Freemason. One thing that struck me hardest when I moved here 3 years ago was that there are homeless on many corners; growing up, we did not have the same problem, and I was raised to believe that no one deserved to go hungry. Months ago my fiancé and I, Haley Grimland, decided to do something about it and have began feeding the homeless out of our own pocket; we essentially make pre-packaged meals of approximately 880 calories with water and drive around and give freely these meals to those who can’t provide for themselves. This is enough to sustain them roughly 30 hours.

Operating as usual

We would like to thank the members of Temple Masonic lodge AF&AM for their support the last couple of weeks feeding the homeless here in Houston.

Unfortunately, we have been forced to take a sabatical from feeding the homeless here in Houston until we can determine how the new laws that make it "illegal" for people to be homeless in the city will effect those we support (the homeless ).

As of today, we will not be meeting every Saturday morning to feed the homeless as we have the last 2 years. But please continue to follow our page, and we will post updates about how we will continue to serve the homeless within the law.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported us these last couple of years. We couldn't have come this far without you.

If you, live in Houston and , like us, are upset that your city leaders have chosen to "solve" the homeless problem by making it illegal for people to be homeless, please make your opinion know to your city government officials.

Please continue to respect each other and help those who cannot help themselves.

Nothing but love,

FCH

It's super bowl weekend, but a large number of our citizens are underground. Out of site of the cars and trains that our tourists are taking. Please don't forget about these that are less fortunate than us.

Foodcrews will be providing a meal on Saturday February 4th. We will make our meals at 2401 w. Belfort here in Houston Texas

We welcome all volunteers

Due to Freedom of Speech, shouldn't you be able to ask for help without being criminalized?

Being a person with compassion is never a crime.

To the lovely people of Houston:

Next weekend, October 24th, we will not be distributing, as none of the directors of FoodCrews can make it to help coordinate. FoodCrews has prepared and given well over 5000 meals this past year, and we are proud to say this will be the first break in the past year. We apologize for the inconvenience!
On a brighter note, we will be giving love and hope this weekend; so come on out and be a hero. Make a difference this weekend!

Today I saw some truly inspiring random acts of kindness, first one of our volunteers went out of her way to purchase much needed medical supplies for one poor soul, and she then help get him cleaned and doctored up. Another volunteer literally gave the shoes off her feet to a woman who had none...

Thank you Carrie, Bonnie, and all of our amazing volunteers! You are all awesome.
