Food for Life – Every Sunday in Houston

All it takes is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a piece of fresh fruit, and one half-pint of juice to keep a child from going hungry for a day.

This is why each week since April 2004, groups of about 15 to 20 volunteers have been coming out to The Hare Krishna Temple of Houston to prepare sack lunches consisting of sandwiches, fruit, and juice for an estimated 300 to 500 hungry children. Every Sunday between the hours 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., the dining hall of the temple is turned into an assembly line of sorts with some of the volunteers lined up spreading peanut butter or jelly on bread; others focus on bagging the sandwiches; still others fill brown paper bags with fruit and juice and line them up in rows on two long tables.

Thanksgiving 2015

Once again Be The Cause will be volunteering at Urban Community Outreach’s Drop In Center in downtown Long Beach. We’ve got really good response and there’s only just a few spots left for clean up on Thursday 2-5pm. We can also use just a few people to come help on Wednesday afternoon/evening anytime between 1 pm and 7pm. If you did not get a confirmed volunteer shift, please do come by to say hi. UCO will take donations of non-perishable gifts. Financial contributions made directly to UCO will be very welcome.





If you would like to help out please send us a message to thanksgiving@bethecause.org with which shifts you’d like to volunteer for or fill out the form below.

Let us know if you can donate a 12-20lbs turkey to be served that day.

Monetary Donatations are also much appreciated.
