Hunger in Brazoria County has changed...
...and not only here in our backyard but in all of the United States of America. Hunger is no longer limited to the homeless or unemployed. Hunger is now the working poor, the elderly and has moved into the homes of Middle Class America.
It is all around us.
The Food Basket was founded in 2002 to meet the growing demand among families for supplemental food in the communities of Richwood, Clute and Lake Jackson.
We strive to make a positive difference in the lives of our neighbors whom we joyfully serve, bringing health and happiness through the efforts of our community of caring volunteers.
