Food and Supply Drives

Each month, NAM’s Joanne Watford Nutrition Center feeds an average of 1,000 people. Your financial support ensures that the Nutrition Center remains well-stocked, and that no one is turned away hungry. Please make a donation today to help the hungry in our community.

Items Needed

If you would like to host a food or supply drive on behalf of NAM, we would welcome your efforts! The flyer below lists everyday food needs at the Joanne Watford Nutrition Center. It may be downloaded and displayed for your food drive.

Suggested Food Items

In addition, the Family Violence Center and Interfaith Hospitality Network are always in need of full-sized toiletries for the clients they serve. The Children’s Clinic also needs basic supplies like band-aids, toothbrushes and toothpaste, Pedialyte, etc. For specific needs, please see our Wish List.

Hosting a Food or Supply Drive

Groups conduct drives in a number of ways, such as setting up collections tables or boxes at their church, school, office, or with the permission of an area merchant. NAM does not condone door to door solicitation in residential neighborhoods.

If you are planning to host a food drive for NAM, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at (281) 885-4604 so that we are aware of your efforts.

Delivering Your Donation

Food donations many be brought to the Nutrition Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, or from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fridays. The Joanne Watford Nutrition Center is located within NAM’s main building at 15555 Kuykendahl Road, Houston, TX 77090. Look for the door marked “Nutrition Center Deliveries” at the rear of the building.

Please note that NAM cannot accept dented cans or expired food. Thank you for helping our Neighbors in Need!
