And the Outstanding 2012 Food Pantry Award Goes to...
The Houston Food Bank awarded the Heights Interfaith Ministries (HIM) Food Pantry, which St. Mark’s (Pecore) supports through gifts, volunteers and gardening, the Bandini Award for outstanding member Agency (Pantry) for 2012.
The annual award recognizes one pantry in the Houston area that demonstrates excellence in services to people in need. The HIM Food Pantry received the award based on the recommendations of Houston Food Bank staff, who evaluated HIM’s relationship with the Houston Food Bank and the services HIM provides to those it serves.
The HIM Pantry's Thursday evening and Saturday hours of availability is unique and essential to serving the hungry when their schedules permit. Many thanks to all at St. Mark’s who support the pantry for making this award possible!
