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.

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 Courtney Frost-Tadlock, NAM’s Community Relations Coordinator at (281) 885-4604 or, 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 “Food Deliveries Here” 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!
